Is this RA

I am having symptoms of Knee pain with little swelling and stiffness, Fatigue, White spots on swollen left tonsil for 7 weeks , Muscle aches , ankle pain, big toe pain, elbow pain, arm muscle pain, achy pain in left finger joints and is making cracking sound when i make a fist.

All of this is going on for the past 6 weeks

I got my results for the autoimmune panel and everything looked fine except for the

RF - 9.8 Threshold is 13.9
Anti- CCP - 17 Threshold is 17 OR 19 (labcorp is 19 but i have seen 17 in other labs)
ANA - Negative
CRP / SED rate is low.
CK levels have fallen from 217 to 91 in 5 weeks

Is this Early Rheumatoid Arthritis ?

Hi there!

All these tests are negative and there is no reason to suspect RA based on these tests (CK is not related to RA). I would suggest consulting an internist for a detailed evaluation of your symptoms and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
