Your CRP value is definitely high at 93mg. It is raised in many inflammatory conditions. CRP is a non-specific inflammatory marker. It is not specific for any disease.

Ideally, you should consult an internal medicine specialist and proceed further with the investigations and further management.

I hope this helps.
