Re: Am I being paranoid?

Pamela Ann, interested to read your post. I discovered that I had an elevated white blood count when I went in for my yearly gyn check-up. I had no idea!!! I have had a couple of cold/sinus problems not too long before this appt. and also discovered that I had a yeast infection. After getting home I started worrying about the elevated WHC and remembered that my hot flashes that had ALMOST gone away had come back. Not bad but sometimes throughout the day and then I read that these were symptoms of leukemia. I've been told that the sinus problems and/or yeast infections could have caused the problem. My OB/GYN said nothing at all about it. I am worried though. I have a check-up the first of Jan and will ask my PCP to check it out.
