Hello & Welcome TO HCM,
I had gone through the case, but we need more history like her age, duration of symptoms, her blood pressure and history of diabetes. Anyway by this history the elevation of ESR is due to Swelling of body & might be infection of red patches.Meanwhile we need more blood test like her Haemogram, Thyroid profile, RA factor, CRP, Liver & Kidney blood test. Also Check her blood sugar level. You should take the opinion from Rheumatologist. Hope my suggestion will be effective for you.
