My erythrocyte sedimentation rate is 34 mm/hr I am 45 years old. Should I be concerned about my ESR being double then normal? I also have been getting sharp ice pick pain in my left temple. The head aches are coming more constant especially when using my mobile phone. I also suffer from night time sweats.
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
ESR is generally high in any inflammatory conditions like arthritis , infection , in TB , auto immune diseases.In your situation I can best correlate this rise to your headaches for any underlying disease.Headache can occur due to many factors like stress , tension , migraine , vessel disease , tumors , infection etc., I would like more information about your headache so that I can give you a better advice.I advise you to visit your Physician and get evaluated more on headache.

A 54-year-old Type-A male business executive had been experiencing migrainelike headaches. One afternoon he also experienced light-headedness, slurred speech and mildly impaired motor function on his right side. One of his colleagues rushed him to the emergency room of a nearby hospital where blood pressure, blood gases, electrolytes, and an ECG were run. His blood pressure was 195/100 mm Hg, which he said was typical of what he had experienced during the past two years. Blood gases and electrolytes were normal. The ECG showed no arrhythmias but did demonstrate a left axis deviation. The gentleman was admitted to the hospital and a cerebral angiogram was performed which showed left cerebral hemorrhaging. 1. What is the diagnosis of this individual s disorder?2. What are the major contributing factors to this disorder?3. What could have been done to prevent this problem?4. What are the early warning symptoms prior to the complication?5. Why did the ECG show a left axis deviation?6. Why was there impaired motor function on the right side from cerebral hemorrhaging on the left side?
I had an MRI which showed stable microvascular ischemia white matter changes without demylinization. I am a 34 year old, 284 lb woman with a hx of migraines with aura. The MRI was done because the aura prior to a migraine changed from the electrical current type to seeing tracers. For the past few months I have had chronic headaches, not just the hormonal migraines I typically see. I take Fioricet for my headaches because nothing else has seemed to work. I do not have high blood pressure or cholesterol issues despite being morbidly obese. I do not have pre-diabetes or other blood sugar issues. My mother has a hx of TIA s, diagnosed when she was 40. I am still waiting for a neuro appt because the neurologist wants to review all of my medical files before setting the appointment. 1. How does the radiologist know the changes are stable when I have never had these show up on an MRI before? 2. Could this be migraine related as opposed to TIA s? 3. What can I do to prevent the changes from becoming chronic?
