thanks for your query

i can feel your concerns

Actually ESR and CRP are nonspecific tests and they are raised in various conditions like infections, inflammations and malignancy.

They may be raised because of joint pains you are experiencing. i advise you to take calcium and vitamin D supplements after consulting your doctor.You should get your eyesight examined by your can take painkillers like brufen.

if your symptoms persist and you experience weightloss,anorexia ,sweating ,or anyother unususal symptom ,then have a complete checkup by your doctor to rule out any evidence of malignancy
