I forgot to mention...

...that it turns out that I don't have rheumatoid arthritis, after all!

The results from my latest round of serological tests came back negative, and as I don't currently have any symptoms, the rheumatologist -somewhat cautiously- concluded that I must have been suffering from reactive arthritis, which as its name suggest, develops in response to an infection elsewhere in the body. Wikipedia tells me that for some people, it occurs as a one-off; while for others it may develop into a chronic condition, but for now at least, as far as I'm concerned, I'm in the clear!
