CRP!: Hidden inflammation would not come from arthritis, which would cause pain. Both increased sed rates and crps can come from metabolic syndrome. High estrogen levels increase firbrinogen, which increases sed rate, but not crp. I wish my medical colleages would stop ordering esrs and focus on crps.

Dr. Richard Bensinger

Depends: The location of the inflammation and the intensity of the inflammation will dictate the speed of recovery and whether you can accomplish what you need to efficiently and rapidly. Be sure you clear with your doctor wheat activities you are engaging in so that you do not re-activate the inflammation.
