My sed rate keeps going up now is it 90 doctors believe I suffered a TIA . Is it possible to take 800 mg ibuprofen to lower sed rate or predisone ?

Don't treat yourself: A TIA won't raise sed rate, certainly not to 90. Such a very high level usually indicates severe systemic inflammation, typically a rheumatologic or autoimmune disorder (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatica, etc) or sometimes severe infection, malignancy, etc. Some of these problems might cause TIA.
