Crp test normals: Hi YBird, Crp levels tell inflammation after an event Low level under 1.0 Average 1-3 High Above 3 It peaks at 2 days, has a half life of 18 hours. Serial measurements over a couple days coupled with left arm pain may indicate where the inflammation is coming from. Heart, sprained muscle? Need more information. Hope this is useful to you Dr Lori Lange
