Hello...... CRP level is not a major criteria for rheumatoid arthritis ... Don't imagine disease on your own... CRP levels will be increased in many other conditions.. Complete examination is required... To confirm RA two major criteria or one major and two minor criteria is required.. Consult general physician ,don't take medicines on your own..
