what could i have wrong with me?

i had an rh factor test done as my bones and muscles hurt me so. i am only 34 years old. the rh factor was 16,000!!!! my doctor is retesting it as she does not think it was accurate. i do. i feel like im 1000 years old.

problem is my sed rate was only 1.

this was yesterday. i have not heard from her since about the new blood work. what should she be testing me for? could i have limes disease?

I agree, I think 1,600 RA is really high.  So the question is, can a person have an elevated RF and a normal sed.  The answer is yes.   A new test for rheumatoid arthritis that measures levels of antibodies that bind citrulline modified proteins (anti-CCP) is more specific and tends to be only elevated in patients with rheumatoid arthritis or in patients about to develop rheumatoid arthritis.
