Climbing SED Rate

I have been seeing a rheumatologist for quite a few years, and have gone from a diagnosis of fibromyalgia to osteoarthritis to what he now suspects is ankolosing spondalitis. I have two "bent" fingers (at the first joint), occasional back spams and stiffness in my joints when rising, I have had a pain at the base of my neck that was not explained by a recent xray.  My blood work has not been remarkable except that my SED rate has been climbing for years and the latest test results (within the past two months) shows a rate of 114. I am concerned that there is some invivisile cause for this, beyond any usual arthritic condition. Are there definitive/supplementary tests to exlain SED rates?
