I have my ESR and CRP checked every so often. In February my ESR was 58 and CRP 12. I have never actually got down to normal levels in all the time I have been taking pred. I had some blood tests done for something else this week, which was fine, and had the usual CRP and ESR tests done too while I was there. My ESR was 117 and my CRP was 132, I nearly died of shock. Has anyone had an increase like that on their blood markers and do they know why?
I saw a new GP today, as mine is on holiday, she said I looked well and healthy. I am so impressed with this diagnosis I keep getting from doctors!!! I don't know why we need blood tests!
