My C-reactive protein (CRP) is currently 155, I have multiple health issues and one low functioning kidney, which rules out all anti-inflammatory medications. I had cervical cancer in 2001. I had total pelvic clearance same year. In 2012 they found out my kidneys were shot, and was diagnosed with VRE (vancomycin-resistant enterococci) 2015. Now I get a recurring pelvic collection which likes to try to find its own way out, just spent a month on IV and oral antibiotics. The day after I stopped them it started coming back. Now my general physician is in consultation with my oncology doctors to try to figure something out.

My CRP was 221 one and a half year ago. I had muscle rheumatism. I am on prednisone since then and 2 weeks ago my CRP was 7 and my ESR was also 7. I hope it'll come down a bit more.

In the rainy season, I woke up one morning with a very swollen knee and even though I have fibromyalgia and arthritis, this type of thing has never happened. The doctor did rheumatic blood work tests along with an x-ray that showed fluid on the knee and arthritis. My C-reactive protein (CRP) was 10.9 and I have felt more unwell than usual since this wet weather.

My C-reactive protein is 2.6 and ESR is 42. I am very worried to see these results. Sometimes I feel stiffness in my 2 fingers, but my rheumatoid arthritis factor is negative.

I have CRP (C-reactive protein) inflammation of 2.9. I am not sure what this means.
