I have pretty much every symptom and it's only been getting worse and worse for like 4 months. I have a VEP test Wednesday, had a visual field test, EMG, etc. coming up at the end of the month but had 10 tubes of blood drawn to rule out other things, too. A brain MRI in April showed no lesions but it's been awhile, never got a spinal tap or MRI of my c-spine. My blood work came back very interesting. A couple things I noted is:
My cholesterol is very, very high: 272 (normal is < 200)
LDL is 191 (normal < 100)
Non HDL is 219 (normal is < 130)
My CRP is very high: 6.77 mg/L and normal is < 3
Albumin is 5.6 and normal is 3.5-5
B12 and Folate are normal. Negative Lyme, Platelets tend to be on the lower end or low. Is the fact that "NO MONOCLONAL PROCESS DETECTED" a good thing?
I apologize for the long post but I'm miserable and talking with you nice people will help no matter what. The waiting game is hard but I honestly feel relief that someone is finally listening to me and taking action to find answers, no matter what that may be. I just want something to help me feel a little more me and function a bit better.
Thank you for any response!
