Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I see that that you are having AOSD .ESR is an inflammatory marker and is raised when any kind of inflammation is present in body . Thats why it is raised . Prednisolone is the medicine for treatment of this disease .Your doctor has rightly prescribed your medicines.

Wish you good health.

Take care.
