So I know this sounds ridiculous but I’m so pleased my bloods have come back abnormal!!! I’m still waiting on ANA, CCP and RF. But it would appear my PV is really high, and also I’m anemic - although this part surprises me as I take a daily vitamin and eat plenty of iron and folic rich foods! Very strange.
My GP has been great so far, I think he sees me as a little medical mystery due to the Parry Rombergs and Cold induced Urticaria, which is fine with me right now.
He is referring me to Rheumatology, and was very interested to hear that’s Rheumatoid Artertis is present in my mum, all her other 10 brothers and sisters and my maternal grandparents.
CRP came back at 7mg/l - which from what I can make out is normal. Although back in August it was only 2mg/l. So he sees that as a cause for concern.
I know it sounds morbid, but I can’t wait for my other Blood tests to turn up. I feel like I finally am on that road to being diagnosed and my symptoms treat. It’s hard graft being knackered and in pain all the time.
Please keep you fingers crossed!
So pleased I stumbled on this forum!
