Autoimmune Disease

I have had systemic symptoms with wide spread joint and muscle pain, anterior/posterior uveitis of both eyes, and now my CRP levels are slightly elevated.  Recently, a bone scan had indicated uptake in the joints of the ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, and hands that may indicate arthritic process.  What does this all mean, and what should my next steps be for diagnosis when I see my doctor?

Hi!
Normally C reactive protein is undetectable in blood. A level between 1-3 shows moderate risk and a level above 3 shows increased risk for heart problems, infection, inflammation, dental problem, arthritis, cancers etc.
Since you have joint and muscle pain with uvetitis, autoimmune causes should be looked into. The various causes can be rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis, and idiopathic arthritis. Discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
