Hello. I'm new to the group!

I'm currently waiting for an rheumatologist appointment to come through, the doctors think I have reactive arthritis following a bad bowel infection a few weeks prior.

My question is... is the ESR rate always elevated? Mine was checked and its normal. But other conditions have been eliminated and all the symptoms of ReA are there!

Many thanks! Sam
