Hello, My intro and background can be found here http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...hing-for-answers-here-i-am.42882/#post-694264 I am scheduled to see a rheumatologist on April 1st, so I know they will want to do a lot of tests. But I also have a slip from my functional and integrative doctor that I was thinking of getting done beforehand to get some of the tests out of the way. This slip includes: vitamin B-12, folic acid, CBC, CMP, vitamin D, assay TSH, thyroid peroxidase antibody, assay of total thyroxine, free T3, assay of ferritin, sed rate, and C-reactive protein I figured since she is very open that maybe I could ask her to order other tests that might point me in the right direction, but I'm not sure where to start. I know there are some viral tests maybe? And I've been reading a lot about hypercoagulation, but most of the stuff is from a few years ago. Does anyone do testing for that anymore? Anyway, I'm new to this so what are some suggestions for other tests to get me started?
