Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

ESR and CRP are the general markers of inflammation and can rise in many conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, other connective tissue diseases, tuberculosis and even in malignancies like multiple myeloma.

You will need further tests to determine the cause of rise in ESR and CRP. these include XXXXXXX to rule out connective tissue diseases, serum protein electrophoresis to rule out multiple myeloma and a CT scan of chest and abdomen to rule out tuberculosis.

I will suggest consulting a physician before going for these tests as these will done only depending on your symptoms.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.
