Frequently Asked Questions
ESR is a routine generic test that provides overall information of the body’s functioning and doesn’t indicate any specific condition. The advantage of ESR is the quick turnaround time and can rule out or indicate a presence of certain disorders and help the doctor in further diagnosis.
You might need an ESR test if you experience symptoms of inflammatory conditions like arthritis or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). These symptoms can include:
- Joint pain or stiffness
- Pain in the shoulders
- Sudden weight loss
- Loose motions
