Hi,ESR is an acute phase reactant which is bound to increase in any type of infection-from common cold to TB to any other serious infection.Hence don't be too concerned about ESR and treatment is usually not monitored by ESR level.Do consult a Physician and completely rule out TB and any other infection.Its not prudent to discontinue anti-TB medications suddenly.Hope this information is helpful to you.Wishing your mother good health.
