I've been having mild joint pains, mostly in my hands/wrists. I thought it might be my thyroid, which was underactive but is now closer to normal or RA but all RA bloodwork came back negative. X-rays of hands normal, mri of hands/wrists show inflammation but no erosion.
I haven't talked with my doctor yet about THESE recent tests, so I'm just wondering...I did a search of iron serum and it comes back as hemochromotosis or liver disease?
My Ferritin, Serum appears to be normal at 28 (10-291)
