Hi,

RA is non specific test.It could be positive in persons who don't have rheumatoid arthritis.On the other hand, Anti CCpP is a specific test that could point towards RA.But,in the light case details,I would like to examine the patient and proceed accordingly.In the meantime, you could visit nearest rheumatology specialist.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Rajesh Gayakwad, Orthopaedic Surgeon
