Re: low white blood count

It could be from spasm in the small arteries, common in autoimmune disease. It is often accompanied by color changes to the fingers or toes, turning purplish, dead white or bright red. It is called Raynauds. I would ask Dr to check some other labs related to autoimmune diseases, like lupus, which causes both Raynauds and low white cell counts in your range.
