Hi thanks for the query.
The value of ESR with 50. Is not to worry. The raised ESR is marker of inflammation in the body, there is no need to worry much if it is of that value. If there are persistent raise in levels repeatedly with long term joint pains she needs to be evaluated by rheumatologist.
