Thank you for the information.

CBP means complete blood picture.

ESR erythrocyte sedimentation rate.

CRP means C reactive protein.

PMR - Polymyalgia Rheumatica

With your symptoms I think your doctor has diagnosed your condition as Polymyalgia Rheumatica ( PMR).

In PMR in the blood there can be signs of inflammation like increased level of ESR, CRP.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.
