Dear manjeet , Idont know whether you are a male or a female, but if you are a female then a mild variation in your ESR during or just before your menstural cycle is acceptable. ESR is a very non specific test and does not signify any disease in particular but rather a presence of some pathology. You should get yourself investigated in detail with a healthcheckup plan which includes your blood tests urine examination, stool examination, thyroid profile and basic USG and x-ray of chest. Visit your general physician with the result and do not get so stressed up about a raised ESR value. Relax and take care.

Pediatrician Dr. Rajiv K Khandelwal's  Response
Dear Manjeet,

Thank you for your query.

ESR is a very non-specific test and does not lead you to any diagnosis. It helps in diagnosis with other parameters. Kindly specify for what ailment have you been prescribed Ciplox.

Cough, weakness and low grade fever can be due to a number of reasons. A complete physical examination by your doctor shall facilitate him in coming to a diagnosis. We can only suggest that you also get your eyes checked up. Kindly discuss in detail with your doctor who may suggest appropriate investigaions upon a complete history of ailments and physical examination.

Wishing you all the best.
