I am a new member I have a. high seed rate this week: 105. I have an undiagnosed illness.which has followed me for over two years with an elevated seed rate and elevated CRP. I was comforted by reading the high seed rate posts.I thought I was fine not knowing my diagnosis. but this winter I had three surgeries to correct things found in the extensive exploration of every inch of my body. my thyroid was removed jan31 and when I began to feel dizzy, listless I enthusiastically hopped on the thyroid bandwagon. my iPad is filled with thyroid info. yesterday the office of my end dr. called and told me my thyroid tests came back normal but me s.rate was elevated and this was problem I should take up with my primary physician. so I am seeking dialogue win others who are maybe in the unknown land of nobody knows. I have never used the type of an iPad. I apologize for typos for some reason seed rate is changed by my spellcheck. I am so comforted by the posts on this website. thank you.

I am fairly new to the lupus forum as well but not to the fibro one. I have several symptoms that say there is something autoimmune going on with me but not any "blood marker" proof. The only thing out of whack (besides many vitamins, iron and such) is my sed rate. Mine is 47. My rheumy seems to think that MAYBE its from having my thyroid out in January just shortly after having oral surgery to clean up an infection in my jaw bone. It may be that my body is still trying to fight off all the things that go out of whack from surgeries and infections. (My thyroid was cancerous so I had iodineradiation therapy too). I am going to continue on the meds I have and check back with him in 6 weeks with new blood work to see if anything has changed.
Hopefully your pcp will have some answers for you. Let me know, it will be interesting to see what he/she feels may be the culprit. We can compare notes.
