Have they also tested for Antiphospholipid syndrome? Also known as “sticky blood” syndrome or Hughes Syndrome.

I can understand that you get worried with your family history, but there are many quite innocuous reasons for raised CRP. And 72 is above normal, but not sky high - it can go into the several hundreds if you have a severe infection. Talk to your doctors about what they thing caused it, and presumably the sticky blood syndrome is the more important thing to get under control?

I'm sorry but we are not medically qualified so no opinouns are really able to help you, so you must talk to your Doctor. I'm not unsypathetic as also had PE's and DVT are RA is a risk factor. I take Riveroxaban what blood medication do you have ?
