Elevated Sed Rate

I have had an elevated sed rate of 60 for over a year now nobody can figure out why. I am 32. I just found out I have heart problems and am having a heart cath done next week could an elevates sed rate be caused from your heart disease?

I'm so sorry you're having heart problems, and hope they can be fixed or easily controlled with meds--and then you can just go on with your nice young life!  Thank goodness they discovered this so they can now do something about it.

I think the best one to answer your sed rate question is your own doctor.  There can be so many causes of an elevated sed rate, and I assume he's done all the reasonable diagnostic testing for this.   Sometimes there's no apparent answer.   It could be caused by a virus that's just taking time to get out of your system, and they can't test for all the possible viruses. I've never heard of heart problems doing it, unless it's something infectious to the heart, like endocarditis.

I hope your question has been answered by now, and your cath went well--and you're on your way to putting this all behind you.
