Hi doctor,

My grandfather is 75 years old. He has severe pain in his right shoulder joint and bilateral wrist joints, especially more at night for the past two months. Just before a month, he was diagnosed as diabetic. His C-reactive protein level is 64 (reference value 0-6). Is it possible to have such a high value? Please explain his problem. He cannot lift his shoulder more than the medium height.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It could be either due to arthritis or as a consequence of viral infection in the recent past.
  • I recommend him to get the following tests done and revert back with reports. CRP (C-reactive protein), ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), serum uric acid, serum RA factor (rheumatoid arthritis) and x-ray of shoulder joint.
