RA blood tests, Confused and newly diagnosed

High anti CCP (>200)
Positive ANA
Negative RF
CRP- zero
ESR -zero..so no inflammation markers show in my blood
MRI- shows bone erosions in hands--not on xrays

Dr diagnosed RA.  Originally he did not test for RF until I asked him to. Now three months into treatment he test RF and changes diagnosis to RHUPUS.  I'm gutted and feel lost and confused.  ANyone out there with similar test results that are doing ok with treatment?  Everything I read on the internet scares the hell out of me.  Please help
