Does anybody know what a high sedimentation rate is for a person with CFS? It is my understanding that the normal sed rate for someone with CFS is very low. My sed rate is a little high at 39. It is supposed to be no higher than 20 (this is normal for the average woman). But, if the normal sed rate for someone with CFS is very low, does this mean my sedimentation rate is really high? They think the inflammation is from somewhere in my intestines. It is probably more Sigmoid Colon issues, so back to the gastroenterologist for another colonoscopy. Yea!
