Thanks for this question

I'm DR. Phil, licensed and practicing internist with over 10 years experience

This test is a non specific marker of inflammation

So anything can cause it

infection, gall bladder, acid reflux.

Literally anything that causes inflammation can do it

IN your case, I suspect it is infection causing it

probably a stomach virus
