I wasn't sure where to post this. I'm posting here and at the chronic pain forum.
Is anyone familiar with RA?
I had lab work done in Nov 05. My blood test showed a ra factor of 18.1, the range was 0.0-13.9
The sedimentation rate was 1, the range 0-30.
This never made sense to me. I was also given prendisone and it did nothing.
Has anyone ever heard of having ra but no sedimentation rate?
And can you have flares only in your lower body?
And one more thing, is it true or a myth(I've heard both) that tomatoes, potatoes and spices bring about a flare?
Any info would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
