Three weeks before my mother had chilling fever and night sweats. We consulted a doctor and blood and urine tests confirmed that she had urinary infection. To substantiate, her ESR was as high as 90 mm/hr.
The antibiotics did not solve the problem and she was admitted for a series of injections which cured her fever and she was discharged.
Two days later, she had fever again and we took her to KMC Manipal. Her ESR was constantly high around 70-85. Doctors ruled out TB, Malaria, and Typhoid (though doc gave Malaria tablets to avoid risks)
At the moment, my mother has mild recurring fever (99degrees for 2 hrs once in two days) and a high ESR. We are concerned; can you help ?
