Talk to your DR.: Not sure what "MRSA wrist anti" means, but if you are having trouble breathing and you have an MRSA infection, you should contact your prescribing Dr ASAP to discuss the problem. Labs are not decipherable without knowing your history and what is actually going on.

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, the information you listed is not interpretable in isolation. Wish you good health!
