Your symptoms and lab data suggest inflammation and it may be inflammatory arthritis. Osteoarthritis usually is not associated with inflammation. if would be prudent to consult a rheumatologist to rule out rheumatoid arthritis. Wish you good health!

Agree that an inflammatory arthritis is likely given circumstances and treatment might need to be escalated. Your treating doc remains your best reference and a referral to a rheumatologist is likely being considered.
