No need of repeat MRI. You can Anti CCP antibodies test. Rheumatologists should have already done it. If that is also negative. It can be seronegative arthritis. But cannot be sure as esr amd crp raise for quite a lot of reasons. They are not specific to anything.
Next Steps
if pain doesn't come down consult your doctor in person, they will guide you through further management after clinical assessment.
