Hello there. When there is infection or inflammation in the body anywhere, ESR and C reactive protein raises. So whenever the ESR or CRP is high, the cause must be explored. Are you having any fever, abdominal pain etc? Consult a physician in person with the reports, he will be able to help you out further. Regards
