For me, my blood work doesn't always tell what is going on. I have had a gradual increase in symptoms over the last 6 months or so, nothing dramatic, just enough that I know something is going on. But my blood work is all basically OK. You might have a flare starting that isn't showing on your blood work yet, you might have some sort of bug or food thing, or it could be IBS. But the key is that you know something is going on and don't just let it go until its something really big. We all tend to just want to believe the doctors when they say its nothing, but our bodies are telling us something different, so listen to your body.
