The normal ESR should be within 20 in 1st hour. Do you have any pain and inflammation of any joint portion?

welcome to HealthcareMagic,
Do not worry, as your ESR is not very high, and your blood test values are within normal range. Raised ESR is suggestive of infection somewhere in your body. Please write if you have any symptoms . If no symptoms you can ignore this ESR value. Laboratory error is also a possibility. So stay cool.
Feel free to ask any additional queries.
Wish you good health.

nothing to be worried if you dont have any symptoms. 27 is not so higher range that will need any medical attention. just live your life as usual.
