What is considered a satisfactory ESR? My neurologist likes it under 25. My GP, who knows very little about GCA, says under 40. I had an ESR last week, as I had a tender hairline and mildish headaches on 3 mg Pred.I also asked him how much I could increase the steroids to, for a 6 week chest infection. I got no results, and when I asked a nurse, at a routine appt, she said the reply was satisfactory, which is of no help to me. I am disillusioned with the medics, at present, as after 7 weeks, my Respiratory Consultant has still not given me the test results, for water on the lungs. The headaches have now gone.
