    E.S.R is very high in my blood test.

    Sir, i am a t6-ts7 complete paraplegic, having a very high stiffness in my both legs. Yesterday i does a blood test, in that every thing is normal except total leucocytes count and E.S.R. The total leucocytes count is 12000cells/cu.mm and the E.S.R(Automated) is 40mm/hr. Is this indicates any complex problem or diseases in my body.. Please explain sir..

    Infection is the most likely culprit. Do you have a chronic indwelling foley?

    I would still have them test your urine with a culture and sensitivity as this will tell them which organism and which antibiotics will kill it. Very important to do this BEFORE you start the antibiotics

    Agree with Smashms. You need to have a Urine C&S before starting an antibiotic. In the meantime, keep the fluids going and get that culture as soon as you can.
