Finally An Appt.

Recommended Posts

Hey thank you all for your support and advice. I finally was able to get an appt. with the rhumatoid doctor its not until January 31st but we are on the cancellation list so we will just wait and see. What is sed rate can anyone tell me I went to my doctor yesterday and she said my sed rate was high but other than that everything was like she liked to see it. She said she woould keep my symptoms under control until my consult in January. It's been great getting to hear from all of you and your positive outlooks.THANK YOU ALL!!! i LOOK FORWARD TO GETTING TO KNOW ALL OF YOU BETTER.

That is not too long to wait, really. It will be here before you know it and you will have time to collect all your questions on a paper. Sed rate or ESR (Erothrocyte Sedimentation Rate) is a measure of how quickly red blood cells fall to the bottom of a tube. According to the linked answer, "An elevated sed rate may indicate an underlying problem. But further testing is needed to identify the cause of the problem." Mine has been up and down for the four years I have had inflammatory polyarthritis, anywhere from thirties to fifties.

Warm wishes,
