I'm new here (only found out about this forum today). I called up my GP to find out my blood test results, and the only comment on it was "nothing of interest, tell patient all is fine". The receptionist couldn't tell me my results and my GP would only flag it if my inflammatory markers had gone up significantly. Because he's said nothing interesting, I've been told there is no point me getting a print out of the results for my own use (to compare to past ones myself).
The reason I'm asking this question is because recently my joints have been in a lot of pain, my fingers and wrists have been so swollen on some days to the point I cannot bend them. I've been struggling with weight loss because I have no desire to really eat, my skin and eyes are dry constantly, and I'm sleeping a lot with no energy. These to me are signs that my Rheumatoid might be active (I've been in 'remission' for about 3 years now and don't take any medications except ibuprofen), but I don't want to push back on my GP or call my specialist if I'm just going to get told that it's in my head again.
TL;DR: Could my Rheumatoid Arthritis be active without significantly increased Inflammatory Markers?
(Sorry for the newbie question)
