Hi can anybody tell me what level there inflammation markers were at when you had a blood test

Hi Charlee.

Mine has never been higher than eight.

Oh mine is 14 and they are not sure why it's there I lost the sight in my right eye which is why they did the blood test and it came up with the inflammation marker but still have no answers for anything. Have started having pains in my hands too now so been for xray but just feel like no one can find out why things are happening

It can be a long process Charlee, just need too keep at it. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of it soon.

I've been at it for a year for them trying to work out why I lost my sight and still no answers for that I have now started pushing them to look at the psoriasis side of things so hopefully they will start having some answers or just help with living with what ever it is

Geez that's some time with out any answer's, and not knowing is the worst.

Yes tell me about it and they just dont no why. Have just looked on my patient record and xray says nothing to report no further action needed so feel that was a waste of time trying to work out the pain in my hands. Just feeling very fed up with it all.

Thanks for listening mac helps to have someone to talk to

Doesn't sound good, i'd get a second opinion.

Yes I have a appointment with my gp again in couple of weeks to go through xray and my bloods so will go from there. Have so many appointments coming out my ears lol

If you get swelling in the hands or any where else, i'd take photo's of it. It would be something to help them and you get it sorted.

I'm new to this so don't have a formal diagnosis yet. What level should the inflammation markers be at normally - or when should we start worrying?

Posted Fri 15 Nov 2019 5.02am by Mac

I think anything below 10 is considered normal. From my understanding you’d like to be 4 or 5. If you google inflammation makers it will tell you.
