BLOOD RESULT ADVICE-Hip stiffness came on after exercise then couldn't walk one day on waking, pain for two years, all tests have come back normal so far.  Pains in forearms, (muscle and bone), thumb/wrists (more on right).  Lower stiff back, hips feel locked at times.  Most days can only bear weight on one leg climbing stairs etc.  Xray on hips 5 months after the 1st flare up showed normal, recent mri on spine has ruled out a specific arthritis on spine which affects hips (wasn't suspected but needed ruling out).  Im left with still the hip pain and each step I can feel through my body.  They seem to swell behind the hip into the buttock, Ive suspected bursitis from the start but nobody has commented on that.  Im still under a Rheumatologist and awaiting next course of investigation.  So MRI normal and bloods show crp 38 and esr 41, Im a 44 year old female.  Is it likely these blood results may ensure I have further investigation or am I likely to be left now if not deemed high???  I'm at risk of losing my job if things don't improve.  The slightest knock can hurt and I struggle to pick up step, bend and the pain in the hip/pelvic region is now bad on a daily basis.  Help please and thanks.
