C-Reactive & MS

My C-Reactive Protein is 32.  My Dr immediately scheduled a Nuclear Stress Test.  It came back normal.  I have been tested several times for MS.  My visual Potential was abnormal(Not sure of the level of abnormality) but my hearing Potential was normal.  I have one lesion on my temporal lobe that was said to be demyelinating lesion.  Had a normal Spinal Tap twice.  I have alot of symptoms which are so close to MS but can't get a dx.  I then thought I had Arnold Chiari Malformation but was told that even though the Cereberal Tonsils are lower than normal that I don't have Chiari.  I'm so frustrated.  Not sure why I have such a high C-Reactive Protein.  I don't have Lupus.  Any suggestions?

Hi Deborah -
Have you seen a rheumatologist?  C-Reactive Protien is elevated often in rheumatic and autoimmune diseases.  THat is an extremely high CRP.  What other blood tests have you had done?

Have had normal sed rate test.  Several years ago I had low Folate but it's now normal.  In 2 months I will be going to Internal Medicine Dr.  Hoping to get some new insight with her.  I have only seen regular PCP, Neurologist and Neurosurgeon.  I'm way past frustrated, needless to say.
