Is the rate at which red blood cells sediment in a period of 1 hour. It is non-specific measure of inflammation. It is performed by placing anticoagulated blood sample in an upright tube (westergren tube) then measuring the rate at which red blood cells fall (in mm per hour). It is useful in diagnosis of some diseases, such as autoimmune diseases, for assessment of severity of ...Read more

ESR and cRP in MS. : Being multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory condition, it would not be unreasonable to think that the ESR and CRP could be elevated when the condition is active. That being said, ESR and CRP are very nonspecific markers and in and of themselves should not be used diagnostically in this context. ...Read more
What could cause high sed rate (37), high WBC, high Eosinophils, high neutrophils, a high ana (54.73), ana Titer 1:40? Chest pain, severe fatigue?
Could cancer be suspect even with normal CBC and metabolic and uriine? Sed rate slightly elevated ANA + w/ spec pattern 1:640.
Unlikely: Angie, the labs you are reporting would fit more a rheumatological condition than cancer. The elevated sed rate indicates an inflammatory condition which the positive ANA would point more down the path of a rheumatological issue. Cancer is unlikely with these labs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Symptoms fatigue / headaches/ malaise. Work up 2008 negative except elevated CRP now elevated CRP 2.73, sed rate 22, ANA positive speck 1:40, ch50>60?
That's good: I would urge you to draw no conclusion from any sed rate reading that's not extremely high unless there's specific symptoms and signs. Millions of healthy young adults have positive ANA at a titer of 1:40 speckled. I'd urge you to get into a fitness-focused lifestyle, hang out with quality friends and do meaningful things. Best wishes. ...Read more
