Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. Your esr is slightly high. There are many causes of high esr. Tuberculosis, infection, anemia, autoimmune disease, paraprotienemia, malignancies all can lead to high esr. But you should not worry because mild high esr is seen in normal person or with mild infection. No need to worry. No any treatment is required. Just repeat your esr after a month.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
