It really depends on what you are taking for pain. If it is an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen, then yes, it'll lower your inflammation. If it's an opiate, it works on brain receptors and doesn't affect inflammation. Some anti-depressants are also used for pain management, they wouldn't affect inflammation either. I would use en.wikipedia.org to search for your pain medication and see how it works.

I'm not sure exactly what test you mean by "AbnPositive" -- in general, I've found www.labtestsonline.org a good place to look up tests and what they mean.
