Hi there, Mostly doctors perform two blood tests such as erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and/or the C-reactive protein (CRP) test to determine whether a patient has poly-arthritis. Hence ESR rate may be high (>20) in case of arthritic condition, though it is possible that you may not be experiencing any arthritic symptoms if you are in inactive phase. But in order to precisely know about the condition, I would like to know such essential things like how long you were facing such symptoms, any other associated symptoms OR how they aggravate. Please connect with us to discuss same in details. I hope it helps.
