Had bloodwork done monday.Dr.s nurse calls today and says blood panel is in normal limits. I asked her what the numbers were. She said my ESR(SED rate) was 17, and my rf(rheumatoid factor) was 5. 1. I asked her if she was sure it wasn't 51, and she said no, 5.1. My CRP(another infla test) measured less than .5
Either my natural supplements pushed me into remission, or I don't have it....but how does that explain two seperate tests with the same blood work having elevated numbers. The tests were taken within 6yrs of each other. The second set of tests I took in 1998 did come back less than the first panel. My ESR was 38 in 1998, but i believe 50 something in 1992.
Trust me I am NOT complaining, I secretely desired to hear those words ("all tests came back normal") but still want to be realistic. I'm still having twinges of mild pain here and there in my joints but nothing major.
