The first blood test they did on me showed I was in the normal range so it said I didn't have arthritis. My sed. rate was normal but within a couple months my sed rate to 68 - 75. I am thinking, for some reason, that the pain comes before the sed. rate shows up. It really dosen't make sense to me. I am in the same type of pain you are in. So sorry to hear it, I know exactly how you feel. Hope this has been a help to you. I'm glad you have a supportive husband, I am also blessed with that, don't know how I could of gone on without him.View Thread
