The full form of ESR is erythrocyte sedimentation rate. Whenever it is raised; usually it warrants a further clinical evaluation and investigations to ascertain the cause. Your ESR would be considered as moderately elevated. Depending on your symptoms further evaluation may be considered. But there are many instances, when no abnormality is found despite the raised ESR. So, for diagnostic point of view, this may does not pin point the issue and may be raised in fraction of normal individuals. Following conditions can cause raised ESR;
1) All infectious diseases
2) All inflammatory arthritis like rheumatoid, lupus
4) Rheumatic disease
7) Giant cell arteritis
8) Multiple myeloma
10) Chronic renal failure (kidney failure)
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
The lymphocytes are raised which do point to a chronic infection and can be related to the ESR., which can be raised in chronic infection. The rest of your investigation which you had mentioned do not point to any reason for high ESR.
It is pleasure and privilege assisting you.
