Unhappy Elevated Sedimentation Rate

I am hoping I could get some advice from others. I have been going continuously to the doctor to find out about systems I am having and I end up going to an endocrinologist, not impressed at all with him from the start, but he did blood tests. Well it came back all fine except my sedimentation rate was elevated. He called me to tell me and he blew it off, nothing to continue furthor on. Well I did some research on it and it says that the sedimentation rate is used to detect if your body has any kind of inflamation, such as an infection, and autoimmune disease, or cancer. He doesn't seem bugged about it, but from my research I have done it says that other tests is done to confirm a diagnosis. Should I be worried, or should I just believe that he knows what he is talking about. I have spent so much money back and forth to doctors to find out what is wrong with me and I know it, but I feel like they don't take me seriously. Thanks for any advice!
