Does anyone else have high Rheumatoid Factor?

Hi friends, First just want to say that I was on here as Kristy but wanted to re-register with email instead of Facebook link. So hello again!!!

Anyways, I have asymmetrical joint issues and psoriasis. And my psoriasis has flared on the problematic joints. But years ago, when I had these large bruises pop up in my elbow for no reason, I had blood tests done and had high Rheumatoid Factor. No other inflammation markers and it continues to be the only one. Normal range is 0-18. Mine is at 79. Does anyone else have this?

    1. Hi , I shared your question with our Facebook and Twitter members and have a few responses from them if you're interested in reading their responses. It seems like you're not alone and it is a bit of an unresolved question for some folks.
