I have a negative ESR and CRP. My hb is 140. I often have elevated Mono and lymphs but low enough that the FBC will auto0authorise (no manual film). I have had recurrent leg pain since I was a teenager. I am currently 21 and cannot sleep as the pain is becoming more frequent but is constant at time of effect. it affects my hips knees and ankles. I have raynaurds. The arthralgia (requesting dr's clinical notes) doesn't discriminate between winter and summer, days where I'm at the gym or just doing minimal work. It's getting frustrating as my Dr. rang today to say both ESR CRP were negative and that if the pain reoccurs that we will start over again ><. I have had reoccuring epistaxis and had removal of a hyperplastic polyp last year with no malignancy. I have no signs of telangectasia (HHT).
The tests that were done yesterday and reported today as noted above was a full blood count, ESR, CRP and Iron studies as I do have Iron def. It's come back up to 28-29 ( usual minimum is 30) but it was 21 about 3 months ago. I have had VWS and that was negative also. I also see a Chiro as my right tibia is slightly curved and my spine is a bit flatter than it should be but the chiro hasn't said anything more that that.
