... april, remember that there is usually inflammation when MS symptoms present itself (when you're having an attack or exacerbation) but it's not necessarily chronic. That why I wrote that just having elevated levels won't necessarily be a marker for a specific condition, but tell your doctor that something is happening. I'm not positive but I would think that in things like... (5 replies)

... Both of these will be elevated in the presence of infection or inflammation so they support evidence that something is happening in your body but unto themselves, do not act as definite markers for a specific condition. ... (5 replies)

... My thoughts (for what they are worth) is that you have a great many symptoms suggestive of lupus or possibly mixed connective tissue disease, which is lupus plus 1 or more other autoimmune disorders. Do you have any previous results on ANA, like how high titer was and what pattern? How about sed rate, CRP (inflammation), anti-Scl-70 (scleroderma), anti dsDNA, anti-Smith... (10 replies)
... it isn't classic. Lupus can cause memory issues, fever, fatigue, tachycardia, cough, dizziness, shortness of breath, basically every symptom you have, inc. high sed rate and CRP. A rheum usually does the workup for it but your PCP or neuro could at least order an ANA blood test, which might be a start. ... (13 replies)

... Crd2000, Sed Rate and CRP are tests that tell us that there is some inflammation in the body - but do not give any further information. They can only point the way. if there was inflammation. If you had a bacterial infection, a blood test should have been able to identify your bacteria and a proper anti-biotic could be administered. your doctor appears to have wielded... (13 replies)
... ut this early on tests can be negative, so they should run all the supporting tests to pick up any clues that might be present, like CBC, urine, chemistry panel, sed rate and CRP for inflammation, and the ANA test. If it is negative and your symptoms persist, I would ask to have it repeated every 6 months or so. ... (6 replies)

... Nothing MS related would show up on an MRI would possibly indicate the lesions which accompany MS- but not 100% of the time...and not all lesions are MS... but an Xray is never used to diagnos MS, and there is absolutely no reason to suspect MS- unless you have all the classic symtoms?

... t make any sense not to show up. I mean, my whole life, tests have come back differently than expected.
