What does it include:

FBC, ESR and CRP to detect inflammation in the body. CRP rises faster and decreases more rapidly than the ESR.

Rheumatoid factor and Anti-CCP antibody - The rheumatoid factor helps to diagnose rheumatoid arthritis and differentiate it from other forms of arthritis that cause joint pain, stiffness and swelling. The anti-CCP antibody is a newer test which is much more specific for a diagnosis of Rheumatoid arthritis– so if it is positive, you are very likely to have rheumatoid arthritis. But anti-CCP is not as sensitive as the rheumatoid factor– meaning that many with rheumatoid arthritis will not be anti-CCP positive. Hence it is important to do a rheumatoid factor as well. Anti-CCP positivity also confers a worse prognosis– that is, there is a greater chance of rheumatoid arthritis eroding into your joints and causing permanent damage.

Uric acid (done 2 weeks after the acute event) attempts to diagnose gout.

Vitamin D –low levels can cause bone pain.
