Are any of the above elevated when you have MS?

I don't know, sorry. I've never been told that any of those things are a problem in my case.

I have lupus along with the ms and my sed rate and c-reactive protein are elevated frequently.  Inflammation either from arthritis, injury or an infection can cause them to elevate.  As far as I know MS won't elevate them.  Take care.

Hi Eleanor,
 
    Those tests are usually elevated because of an inflammation problem possibly due to some form of arthritis, Lupus, or other causes.  MS doesn't elevate blood work.  Some people seem to have an elevated ANA, but that one isn't an indicator either because it can be elevated in many things.  Hope this helps.
