Blood work can be normal when the disease is active.
I also heard about Vitamin D. I guess I need to get with it and buy some....
I was almost to remission then I seem to be flaring again. I did have bouts with exhaustion though. It is frustrating.

Fitzy, thanks for clarifying...I had assumed you meant the CMP and CBC panel, plus sed rate and CRP.
What some docs call normal is not optimal. What were the exact readings for the iron (serum iron, ferritin, TSAT, TIBC) and B12?
My doc today actually gave me a script for once a month vit D. She said it would help with fatigue. Also being the darker months my body wasn't getting it from the sun.
I have no idea what remission is since I've never had it. I'm hoping to though.
Fatigue and some aches sometimes but always D.
