What can cause vascular pain while suffering from elevated sedimentation rate?

I am anemic and have a high blood sed rate. They have been controlling my iron via infusions and I m taking 50,000 Vitamin D once a week. Have been going in to the two different drs. since last Nov. Still having problems. I ve been checking on the internet and one thing I seem to have symptons of is temporal arteritis. I also have a compromised immune system with Crohn s. I ve had a colonoscopy which was okay, but when I had Crohn s the tests were all low, but nothing showed up until they did an exploratory surgery and I had major problems. Now my blood vessels hurt. I have bulging like temporal arteritis and I am trying to find out what could be wrong.

You have temporal arteritis and this is the reason for high ESR.

You have Crohn's disease.

You should see a rheumatologist for evaluation.

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