I had a regular CRP done and it was normal. I had a high sensitivity CRP done and my number was 13. So which one is correct?? Do I have inflammation or not. It said if the HSCRP was over 10 its probably not cardiovascular related.
I am not diagnosed with anything and have been going to docs for about 18 months with absolutely no answers. Rheumatoligist saw normal CRP and so thinks there no auto immune arthritis, even though I have arthritis all over and am only 38. I mean shoulders necks, hip joints etc...
The cardiologist is treating me for the HSCRP even though it clearly said over 10 needs to be investigated elsewhere... So do I have some sort of arthritis auto immune or am I going to keel over???? I have not been back to the cardio doc since he scared the living hell out of me with MTHFR, said my arteries were inflamed (because of the hscrp) and it was not good not good at all. Then Google pointed me to vascilitis, he did not say that but he did say your vessels are inflamed which is what that disease is. He also told me we did not see any clots in this testing but that does not mean theres none in there... calming, stupid jerk. I am not going back to him and got a new PCP but if anyone has any info to offer on the CRP vs. HSCRP I am all ears. Thanks!!
