For almost a year I have experienced joint pain in my toes, recently my finger joints are also painful. The doctor diagnosed with sp PD (no rheumatology doctor in my city), I had RA, the only drugs given were 4 mg of methylprednisolone and diclofenac sodium. When consuming the pain, the pain subsides but when the medicine runs out, it recurs, then go to the doctor again, and so on for less than 1 year. Is the diagnosis of RA not through laboratory examination? Is the medicine given by the doctor is right? Why haven’t they shown any signs of healing yet. Do I really have to go to dr. rheumathology, because it only exists in Medan, as the closest city, thank you.
