Re: Chronic all over muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue and headaches

You have to get rid of this Dr! I wonder if he would have even told you about the sed rate if you hadn't questioned it. 35 is not "slightly elevated". It is clearly elevated, especially with being on regular antiinflammatories. Most normal people run sed rates of 2-5, even though the female range goes up to 20. I would definitely get a copy of your labs and see what he tested and if anything else was glossed over. This is your chance to find out what is wrong, now that there is something objective showing up that is clearly not normal. The rheum should be able to identify what it is.
