I was diagnosed about 9 months ago with seronegative inflammatory arthritis and it took almost 18 months to get to that diagnosis. First of all starting in my ankle, which got better with no treatment, then my foot, then my index finger and now my thumb.
After 9 months of treatment with Sulfasalazine I'm able to stop my NSAID, but still have pain and discomfort in my hands (mostly my finger and thumb). I'm stressing all the time about remission and wondered if there was anyone else out there with seronegative arthritis who could share there experience?
Am I expecting too much from my treatment? Is 9 months long enough? Is remission likely?
