How high?: 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. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, CRP and ESR are different tests and one can be elevated while the other is not. It would have helped had you provided the actual results. Wish you good health!
