Does anyone know the recommended amount of ESR & CRP in your blood tests? Mine seems to vary quite a lot. The last time, 2 months ago, the CRP was 9, now it is 12. The ESR was last time 'just normal' whatever that is? This time it is 8.
From this test, the DR's comment was 'no further action required'. I did not speak with them but thought I might get more info from yourselves.
I have GCA (confirmed by autopsy) & PMR since Jan 17, started on 70mg preds and twice put back up and one time back to 60mg. I am now down to 6mg and hoping to drop to 5.5mg over the next few days. I do have lots of aches and pains etc which the rheumatologist (back in Jan) felt was arthritis returning after the preds had suppressed the pains for the past couple of years.
During all this time, I have had a dose of pneumonia, shingles and a massive pulmonary embolism, gall stones in bile duct (have no gall bladder) So not doing so bad. Before all this, I was an active hill walker.
