High (ESR) sed rate

Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and i have been taking Arimidex since last March. I was fine until a month ago when i started developing aches and pains in my joint, but not too bad. As i thought it might have been Lyme disease, i went to the doctor to have some blood tests done. Apparently, i don't have Lyme disease, but my sed rate is very high (65) and i don't have any other symptoms. The doctor does not know what to think of it. So, my question is being on Arimidex and some joint pains, would this make my sed rate go up like that? Thank you for any feedback.  Nicole
