    I don't even know what that is.

    I'd stick with the doctors on this one.

    ESR, Erythrocyte sedimentation rate.

    http://www.labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/esr/glance.html

    Seems to measure the rate of fall of your red blood cells. If you have an increased amount of blood proteins (fibrinogen, immunoglobulins) it will cause your RBC's to fall faster, increasing the ESR. If you have a high ESR it is an indirect sign of increased inflammation.

    Probably a better webiste is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erythrocyte_sedimentation_rate

    It says that this cannot diagnose anything, but it is used in conjuction with other tests for a diagnosis. This seems to be a pretty broad marker for many things. Talk to your doctor, get it checked out and get other tests for things since this is a red flag saying something is wrong.
