See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the information you provided suggests inflammation, not necessarily infection. It is not feasible to provide a more meaningful opinion without examining you and you should consult the doctor who ordered the tests.
