Not directly: CRP is a marker of inflammation. When elevated it indicates that your joints are likely inflamed. That can lead to more joint pain, stiffness, and fatigue. The pain can disturb your sleep and that can lead to cognitive difficulties. The symptoms of RA can also result in frustration and that can lead to depression. Depression like poor sleep is associated with cognitive difficulties.
