I started on methotrexate about 2 months ago for RA and getting blood tests every 2 weeks. This week by CRP and ESR have increased again. My ESR went from 23 down to 16, which is good im told. However this week it is up to 21 again. What does this mean?
My CRP was at 8 a few weeks ago but now it has increased to 23, again does anyone know what this means?
I feel pain in my wrists, hands and shoulders and I have been exusted for the past week- would this be the cause of the levels changing? I am hoping that I am not going to flare but I have been so tired and my hand and wrist joints hurt bad and every muscle in my body feels sore and heavy.
Can someone please explain the results of the blood tests and tell me the normal ranges for these tests- Im not sure ehat they are. Please help
