My recent round of labs showed some elevations, specifically: ALT, Alk Phos, BUN/Creatinine, CRP, blood in urine with slightly low specific gravity. This week I had a biopsy of my nasal passage (due to inflammation and discharge); am being referred to nephrologist; and scheduled for abdominal ultra-sound to view kidneys and liver. None of my labs are "off the chart" high/low; they're flags, keeping me in diagnosis limbo. I'm still curious about the possibility of CGA, as the painful tenderness of my temples never goes away; however, I've never had an elevated Sed Rate, so the doctors think not. The vagueness and multi-faceted presentation of my symptoms is confounding.
Is this normal for possible vasculitis? Should there be more definitive, glaring red light markers/symptoms?
Thanks for listening.
