Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Your complete blood count report is normal. Your esr is high. But high esr is common in connective tissue disease.
You should take steroids to suppress your immunity. Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
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.
