I am 75 years old with arthritis in most joints. I had a sedimentation rate of 68. I am not sure what this means.

I've had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since I was 3 years old and now I'm 46. My sedimentation rate for the past year has been over 130, I'm in severe pain and I'm always tired.

I had pain behind my right eye and pain in the back of the right ear. I went to the ophthalmologist and he prescribed a blood test for templar arthritis. My result of sedimentation was 15, the results of reactive protein was 0.7. I have not heard from the doctor and hope everything is ok.
