    Hello Jayne, As a fellow RA sufferer you have my sympathy, I had a serious flare some time ago and e-mailed my emergency contact who said they would arrange a blood test for me. Four weeks later and nothing happened I contacted my local surgery and had one taken. Rheumatology said they would contact me as soon as they had the results, another three weeks on, nothing. On a more positive note the RA is not quite as bad as it was a few weeks ago which MAY be a result of consuming large doses of turmeric and collagen. Try to keep positive I find my RA seems to come and go in waves with no obvious trigger, hope you see an improvement soon.
