After 2 years of physical therapy, SI joint injections, facet injections, piriformis injection, 2 SI joint ablations, and a medial nerve branch ablation.... total frustration as nothing was working. My ANA, RF, HLA B-27, and sed rate were all negative July 2011. I asked for a repeat MRI in October 2012. Results were multiple areas of inflamation/and bilateral bursitis were visible. My ortho sent me to a rheumatologist. She has started me on Plaquenil.

My question is related to labs. Being it has been 19 months since the previous labs were done looking for RA.... should I ask to have them redrawn? And will the fact that I have all ready been on the Plaquenil for a month affect the results?
