I went to my GP yesterday to discuss the results of my last blood test. The CRP was up to 26 and ESR to 19. I wasn't too surprised as I hadn't felt brilliant last week and my shoulders are still painful. The trouble with that is that I also have arthritis in my shoulders and it's difficult to tell which ache is OA and which is PMR. I have got down to 1mg and have been told to stay on it instead of decreasing as I'd been planning. I wonder if she should have recommended an increase.
