Thank you for getting back.

Grip strength of 50 is less, whereas 150 is normal. This lack of grip strength is most likely because of pain.

Shoulder and neck movements are almost normal.

Blood pressure is normal.

Weight is more than normal.

All the blood tests are normal, including hemoglobin, total WBC count, platelet count and creatinine.

Schobber test shows more distance between hand and floor, suggestive of stiffness and pain in spine, resulting in lesser flexibility.

Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
