BuddyLeesWife Posted April 5, 2006 Report Share Posted April 5, 2006 My husband has been complaining of "bone pain" in both elbows, forearms and wrists so the Dr. ran some blood tests and did x-rays and the tests came back with an elevated Rheumatoid Factor (RF) level. Fortunately the x-rays were all normal but we now have a consultation with a Rheumatologist in a couple of weeks. He will also be getting more blood tests done this week. He also has elevated MCH and Monocytes.I am just starting to learn about Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). I am hoping to hear from some of you that your RF factor was elevated but you do not actually have the disease or that it has not progressed for many years. I am so bummed - this disorder just seems to lie in wait until it decides to pile on a new symptom. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
