RA latex turbid
An_255502 posted:
my RA latix turbid is 16.5H what does the H stand for does this mean that it is high? and my lab work also showed alkaline phosphates, S to 37 L what does that mean.
I was told that I had rheumatoid arthritis that is has not been a day for the last 3 months that I have not had pain 2 of those days has totally knocked me down completely I am going on my fourth time I have been totally down for 4 days now.
my hands swell and I have really bad edema on my legs and ankles, my skin hurts or if I bump I get bruised very easy. I have an appt on Tuesday but I would like some info before I go.
