welcome to HealthcareMagic
The ESR increased is always a sign of some active infection or disease going on in our body and there are many conditions which can increase the ESR like anaemia;fever;tuberculosis ;any sort of infection;rheumatoid arthritis;and in your case even the gout can give rise to increase in ESR.So presently get treated for gout and do not worry about ESR it will not harm you.Once the disease is treated properly your ESR will revert back to normal.
