Re: Elevated CRP, beta globulins, and sed rate
Your symptoms and labs sound a lot like mine. I've been through the ringer of tests by every kind of specialist. They know something is wrong, but they don't know for sure what it is. Due to my elevated crp and sed rates, Cleveland Clinic diagnosed me with Seronegative Spondyloarthropathy --- which is an area of autoimmune illnesses that are seronegative--- in other words - negative ANA and RA. The meds they put me on include prednisone and salfasalazine --- but after 2 months, I am still not feeling well. The rhumatologists literally do not know what to do with me. Please keep updating this thread, as I am very curious what Mayo says. In fact, a doc yesterday thought I might do well at Mayo - but cleveland clinic has a higher rated Rhumatology dept. However, if you do get some answers, I may just be willing to go to Mayo as well!
