Blood rest results came back showing a high c-reactive protein of 39.96...How is this possible? What could it mean? What should I do next?

Elevated CRP is an indication of inflammation.
Your doctor who ordered the test would have more information; all lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context. See this site for more information, and discuss the matter with your doctor. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/c-reactive-protein-crp.
