    I don't know much about sed rate other that it usually or always has to do with inflammation. I had a blood test right at the start of a neck pain flare up, and my sed rate was very high- in the 50s , and my dr was very concerned.
    I had the test repeated later when neck was better and sed rate came back to normal or closer to normal (forget the number).
    So maybe have it re-tested later?
