I phoned my surgery yesterday to see if any of my blood tests that I had taken at my hospital appt a couple of weeks ago, had come back. (Until now all my blood results that I`ve ever had done have always come back normal).
They told me that my Rheumatoid Factor was negative, ANA is normal, ESR is normal but my CRP is elevated (12). I know this is an imflammatory marker but I am not sure of it`s `relevance to Lupus`?
Could anybody tell me, in more detail, what this means? And if anyone has ever had similar results maybe?
I was just surprised really, that along with my long list of symptoms for so long (2 years), that something has finally shown up in my bloodwork!!
I feel less of a hypochondriac already!!!
Thanks for your time,
