A raised ESR
is only indicative of an inflammation in the body, even a mild infection in the body in the body can give rise to raised ESR , however for your mother at the age of 52 it is well within the normal range .
I would like to know what other tests were done for your mother . Does she experience any burning or tingling
sensations in her arms , forearms or fingers .
does she experience weakness in her hands
did she do any strenuous work in the last few days
Is she a diabetic
I suggest you to get an X-ray of her spine done to determine any problem with the inter vertebral
disc (spinal cord
) in which case she will have to avoid lifting heavy weights . you will have to consult a neurologist
for further management.
