In brief: There are

Many markers titer slab results and scores used by physicians to monitor effectiveness of treatment for RA but arguably the most important one is your symptoms.
If you feel you are getting worse call your tbeumstogust. Modifications in your medication regimen may be needed but do not alter this without discussion.
