my sed rate was 50 coupled with headaches, blurry vision and facial pain. A biopsy was done and came back negative for temporal arteritis however the symptoms persist and I was scheduled for an oct test by my neurologist can u explain the oct and is this sed rate extremely high
Hi, Thanks for asking. Based on your query, my opinion is as follows. 1. Sedimentation rate above 100 with positive biopsy would have helped in diagnosis of temporal arteritis. 2. As biopsy is negative, CRP level estimation along with complete hemogram could help. Refractive error also may be required to be evaluated. 3. Trigeminal neuralgia, can also present with these symptoms. You need to be on gabapentin therapy to evaluated for any further symptoms. Hope it helps. Any further queries, happy to help again.
