A friend of mine has just been given her blood test results and the RF test was 500. That is high I think but I have read that if it is high that is good as it means the body is fighting back. Can anybody shed light on this?

Also, are there any new mothers also experiencing the same condition after giving birth. It is NOT uncommon but many seem to recover from it. Does it get worse at certain times of the month due to hormones?

Any information/help would be appreciated.:)
