good Morning to all

I also have a high WBC 11.8 My RBC was high and my HGB and Hct also high, My Dr sent me to a Hematologist and he ran a battery of tests including a bone marrow biopsy and aspiration. Luckily that came back negative for leukemia. but he said I have secondary polycythemia. i have now had 3 phlebotomy, (blood letting) and my red cell is at normal and the others are lowering. i go back in 2 weeks to see where i am at.
I am also very intolerant to certain types of chemicals( I can go into anaphalitic shock) and am a smoker. And i know that smoking does not help but it also is not the only thing that can cause it. I am beginning to feel better,a little less tired and less numbness and tingling in my feet. hope this can help some one out there.

hi, i also have a high wbc. it started off with a sore throat so i went to the docs and she prescribed doxycycline. a couple of days into the course i started to get very fever-ish and my glands in my neck became very swolen, also my muscles and joints aching - i was in so much pain, so i went back to my doctors and she took bloods thinking i had glandular fever. as it turns out it isnt glandular fever, but the blood test revealed a very hig WBC. any ideas what it may be? i feel like c**p all of the time , very lathargic, and painkillers are not having much relief on my aching muscles. %-)

My white came back at 12.8 so they immediately ordered another count. I understand that that one is elevated also. My issue is that I FEEL FINE. No infection, no undue pain. I have the weekly headache and fatigue, which I believe is caused by summer sun headaches since I wear glasses. I've put on a few pounds since my daughter was born (7 yrs ago) but otherwise there is nothing else I can put my finger on.

I'm not going to get too worried. Unless I feel like c**p then I don't foresee a problem right now.

I was down with fever (39 deg) 2 weeks agoand was told that I m having bacteria infection due to my high WBC then was 18k, I was given a week of antibiotic.. My fever managed to subside in 4 days and I was fine till 2 days back.. I was experiencing the same symptoms (sore throat, body aching and fever).. The blood test result turned out to be normal except for wbc > 23k, which worried the Doctor who then ordered me to get admitted in hospital for more tests to find out the actual cause..

I went to the doctors for lower left abdominal pain and pain in my left ovary during intercourse, they found a small cyst but they said it wasnt the problem. I had two differnt ultrasounds, four differnt urine samples and a blood test which showed a high white blood cell count 12.5. THey think it might be a hot appendix, or another infection. i also have constant yeast infections. My doctor prescribed doxycycline just incase there is an infection it would start killing it. ive taken it for one day now and i have to go back to the doctors in two days for a follow up. i will also then be getting chlamydia and endometriosis tests back. I have lost wieght due to loss of appetite and i occasionally feel nauseas, as well as getting tired really easily and i also have a mild fever. My doctor told me if i dont eat, become MORE constipated, start to vomit or have an increas in fever i have to go to the ER. I didnt think it was anything serious but it sounds like it is. And reading other posts like mine make me wonder! i must find out what this is!!

I'm 39 years old, I've been really sick for three years. I've had many surgeries and I have fybromyalgia. My white blood cell count has been elevate consistently for three years now and I have thrush all the time ( that's an overproduction of yeast in my mouth ). I also tested positive just recently for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and have an appointment with Infectious dieseases and an appointment with a hematologist. Maybe after three years they can figure out what's wrong! Btw, infectious diseases called to tell me me test results for RMSF were more than likely a false positive but they will test me anyway at the of May this year! Between the fibro and the thrush quality of life is poor! I truly hope they figure this out soon because I'm losing hope fast!

Hi all,
Im 33 yrs old and since january i have been treated for more than 8 water infections. In july i had the symptoms again but the doctor looked closer at my previous urine results to find i have never had an infection!! I have been referred to urology next month but the pains in my lower back, abdomen and legs are getting worse. I cannot have intercourse as this is also painful I have had a pelvic ultrasound which is clear and my last bloods showed a white blood cell count of 12.5 but they cannot tell me why. Im becoming more and more worried. Can any help??

Are you still out there a year later? I have a similar problem. My extensive bloodwork indicate I am sick, and yes the tests have been repeated. But I feel fine. Big things like malignancies have been ruled out. But I feel like I'm waiting for a shoe to drop.
