I was so scared 2 months ago. My labs were crazy high RA over 969 i know it’s sounds crazy high. my ESR 58, CCP 116, others normal. inc CMP CRP..
I am on plaquenil 200 mg 2 times daily for 2 months..My new labs show RA down to 649, still very high, and ESR was only 4 hooray!! rest normal..and i feel good..nothing like what most of you are going through..have been close but not as bad..
I have also been tested for Hep c Non react or negative forgot what it said, also Ana is negative.
Does anyone know if my ESR being 4 means remission? They didn't repeat the CCP yet. I don’t see my rheumy Dr till next week. and that’s because i called..for my results, and asked for and explanation, of my tests..I am hopeful and grateful. I do know this can change since i was recently diagnosed..but think i have had it for yrs..Any info appreciated i Google and get different confusing info..but here it seems like you all care and help each other which is so comforting…Good luck all of you!!!
I am on pain meds , and i have lowered my intake by less then half within the last Month.
