Worried about a extremlyelevated test from 4 years ago
« on: May 23, 2014, 12:36:44 AM »
It's bad month on me due to stress at work and my anxiety is out of control.

This incident was 4 years ago. I'm worried about an ESR test I had taken at ER when I had bronchitis, fever and sinus infection. The ESR test was 110, google says anything over 100 is always malignancy. So luckily I was seen by hematologist and had full work up and all was negative. He question why ESR was even measured in first place with someone with acute infection. 4 weeks later I recovered but test was slightly elevated by one point. I was extremely happy to see that and was reassured by docs that everything is ok. Not even the one pointer bothered me, until now.

I want to get tested. Then again im telling myself, I managed to forget this for so long, what triggered it and was I am so obsessive with another ESR test. SMH :(

Should I ignore this, especially if I feel 100%?
