If it was only a little out of whack, would ask for a repeat CRP, perhaps more than one over several months' time, to see if it drops. If so, maybe it was temporarily elevated by the Lyme disease. If it stays the same or goes higher, then you'll have more data from which to make a decision on what to do next. If you're still not satisfied, go for a second opinion.
Many things can cause CRP to rise - any kind of inflammation in your body, even gum irritation. Do you visit a dentist regularly, and have you been told that you have gingivitis? Did you have a training injury recently that resulted in temporary joint or muscle inflammation?
You are always within your rights to refuse to take a medication - just make sure your doctor knows your decision. He can't help you if he doesn't have complete information, not to mention (god forbid) that you end up in an emergency situation, can't speak for yourself, and the physicians treating you are operating on incomplete or wrong info.
yes. i had atraining injury on my cervicals and flares up very frequent, sometimes i need to take kenalog injections by a diferent doc thatn my PCP and also muscle relaxers at home, other than that i am very healthy
thanks for your response, very thought ful, i need to makle sure that i tell my doctor about skiping the med for now and probably finding a new primary care doc who is an internist
You're welcome. :) It's a good idea to do your own research and listen to your own body and your instincts, even when you trust a doctor completely. And, again, building trust means you the doctor needs to be able to trust you to tell him or her everything. It's a two-way street! good luck!
