My dear Bonita,thank you so much for all information.You help me a lot,now I understood what is flare.....
How are you felling now?
How often you have flare?
Dear Bonita,what doctor did after your sedimentation rate was so high,and your CRP?
What other test I need to have if my ANA test is positive(on Tuesday)?
I love all of you!!!!!!!!!!
I am scary my friends,I will let you know what my blood test show.
Love you all Slada)))))))
I am so glad this topic was brought up. Although I have a positive ANA the biggest sign of my flare is my CRP. At last count it was 9.9. It was this test that had me sent to a rhumy. No one has EVER told me that this was a sign of Lupus however when I read about it being a sign of inflamation it made complete sense. I really wish there was more info about this considering it seems that it is high for many of us
Dear TGAL my CRP is 21,1.....and mu ESR is 49 and my ANA is negative.My dear friends I don't know what is wrong with me?
I am scary!
I got phone call from doctor and he send referral to one more internal specialist so who ever call me first I will go.
My lymph node under my jaw is painful and my ear hurt.I can't touch under my ear in my jaw how much pain I am now.
What is wrong with me?
Do I have cancer?((((
sending you a cyber hug
Im new to Lupus I also have Rheumatoid arthritis for me i always have high CRP and ESR,the Crp for me goes up when in flare.
a flare is a sharp increases in pain,inflammation uncontrolled and when they upped medication to reduce sytmpoms.
your not scary at all.
what have they saus so far as to whats wrong,are you on any medication at all?
here for support.
reagrds the pianful lymph gland could be an infection or just run down alwasy ebst to see a medic for such sytpoms.
Just hang in there and let the doctors figure it out and if you have any questions please write them down and ask the doctor on your next visit. My sed rate was 106 when i was in the hospital in a flare and your really feel very bad and sick. He would not put me on any antibiotic because he wanted to just let it run its course till i got better. I was released after 11 days with a fever of 100.3 but i was feeling better than when i went in. I was started on prednisone and immuran for some time then switched from immuran because it brought my white and red blood counts too low and was put on plaquinel and methotrexate and i am feelling better now. Love Bonita
My dear friends Can I have autoimmune disease If my ANA is negative?
My CRP is 21 and ESR is 49...
I am not on pills because they don't know my diagnosis.
I am still waiting for internist and rheumatologist
Dear Bonita I am happy to hear that you are better,but sorry to hear that you was in hopsital.
Do you have diagnosis?
Why they put you on those pills?
Dear Melly is it yours ANA was positive?
How they find out you have lupus?
Love you all Slada))))
I was diagnosised finally with myositis and lupus rhumatoid arthritis and i am currently on prednisone 7 mg and plaquinel 200 mg and methotrexate for this and the metho is really helping with the joints and pain and swelling. Right now my chief complant is my back. I was injured at work a few years ago and got a cage and plates and screws in my back and 2 years later i had surgery on the same area. I was just in the er again for severe back pain and the denegrative diease is getting worse. I am going for and mri on monday and will have a series of epidurals again and then off to see my surgeon again in April Bonita
Dear Bonita,what are tests for myositis and how they figure out what is wrong with you?
Your ANA test was positive?
If my ANA is negative what I can have,do you know?
my pet scan and the blood tests did the myositis diagnosised. Bonita
