just want some advice on the next set of blood tests I should be asking my Doctor about, as been going round in circles for over 5 years now. I'm UK based.
I have been diagnosed with M.E. (CFS) for 15 years, Fibromyalgia for 6 years and supposedly Rheumatoid Arthritis for 4 years.
Plasma Viscosity: 1.91
White Blood Cell: 11.3
Neutropenia?? (Neutrophils) Neutra Something: 8.18
I've had the standard two blood tests for Lupus, they came back negative. My hands get swollen and my Rheumatologist thinks RA and Gout (crystals in the blood tests), so have been on Sulfinpyrazone and Hydroxychloroquine for a number of years. But stopped taking the pills for this latest blood test and found that they were not actually doing anything. My Doctor is stumped. Had Thyroid checks, Celiac disease and most of the standard blood checks.
Inflammation indicator is too high but doesn't pinpoint what is causing the inflammation. What should I be doing more or investigating?
Thank you for any advance.
