Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX

Well looking into your query when blood test like ESR , CRP it is said that the patient is having inflammation . It basically means that some chronic or acute infection or some other pathology is going on that is making the body do the reparative processes in lay man language . It signifies that some disease process is going on .

Take care.
