Not for the first time my ESR is a bit high at 58. Previously (2 weeks ago) it got down to a princely 34 but before that it was 50 and 62 (6 weeks ago). Now with both the 62 and the 58 reading of yesterday I bounced into my GP feeling I must surely be in drug induced remission because I'm almost pain free these days. I do feel a little lousy all the time, especially after taking my MTX, and the nausea is back again but this time I'm wondering if it relates to the Hydroxy as the bouts of nausea are daily. But I've not had any bugs, my WBCs are fine and so is my liver and all the other stuff that so I studied this print out from my surgery a bit disbelievingly. My GP has seen these results and written "no action necessary" so he's obviously not worried.
Could it just be that I've got a higher average than normal - could it be meaningless and what will the rheumy read into this when I see him next week? I really don't have any pain in my joints - just some general stiffness and lots of clicking. I am baffled and slightly worried because I have been assuming that I have no active RA just now - surely it's not possible to have active RA and not to feel aware of it? My main anxiety is that there's something going on that my GP hasn't tested for because everything is just revolving around RA and thyroid.
Has anyone else experienced this?
