Hello,

ESR is a non-specific marker and can be elevated in mild inflammation as well. Your cough could be due to upper respiratory tract infection. So your ESR elevated. If you have no other complaint than no need to worry. You can consult physician once for examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami,
