what can make your rheumatoid factor go high
Rheumatoid factor is a blood marker for rheumatoid arthritis. It can be elevated due to having rheumatoid disease or it can be a false positive test. To determine if you have RA you also need to have symptoms like morning joint pain and stiffness lasting most of the morning along with redness and swelling of the joints in the hands and feet. I recommend that you see a rheumatologist
