I recently received a Rehumatoid Arthritis Panel with Reactive Protiens as well as other lab tests. My results were as follows:
RA Latex Turbid .....<10 (normal)
C-Reative Protien Quant......2.4 (normal)
CCP Antibodies 48 ABNORMAL
Sedimentation Rate 4 (normal)
As well as
Creatine Serum 1.04
My family dr said he didn't think any of these numbers meant Rehumatoid Arthritis but I get the complete opposite information when I look this up online. I am experiencing joint pain in my hands each morning for 1 hour as well as having pain in both my knees and feet.
He is referring me to a rheumatologist for safe side measures he says as this is not his expertise. However I don't have this appointment for several weeks.
My question is, with the above numbers and my symptoms couldn't this be Early RA? I'm just confused and at a loss for answers since my new appointment isn't for weeks and I'm left here in pain until then. Thanks for any input!
