Hi heager1 - For me it was the exact opposite, my RF factor was normal, (which is part of the reason it took so long for me to be dxd) My primary checked it a few times but no other blood tests. When I finally was seen by a Rheumy and they did additional blood test my anti ccp was off the charts and still my RF was only slightly elevated.
