ESR abnormal. Have dizziness, vitamin C deficiency. What is going on?

i just looked a some bloodwork that was done a while back but my dr had given me the results saying everything looked good. However I noticed my ESR was 28. Im female 38. I got the tests because I was feeling dizzy. I had a full CBC blood count work up. Other than being slightly Vitamin D deficiency (22), everything else is normal. Waldenstroms disease runs in my family. My mother had it and was diagnosed with it at my age. I am concerned this could be early signs. Should I go back and get this done again?

By going through your query it seems that your are not suffering from the Waldenstroms disease .
In Waldenstroms disease the proliferation of B-cells interferes with the production of red blood cells, resulting in anemia but your CBC(complete blood count ) is within normal limit except increased ESR.
Please faith on your doctor.

For dizziness , I personally advised to consult ENT specialist.

Wish you good health
