Brief Answer:
infection in body

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thank you for query.

I saw the message. went through reports, Elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate indicates infection in body. Your reports indicate high rubella infection. Rubella infection is contagious.
First meet a physician and get examined, so that you can get proper vaccination & treatment.

Do you have any rashes, fever, arthritic pain, swelling over ears?

Get back if any query.

Regards,
Dr VSK
