| | Suddenly High WBC!??
Hi, I recently went to the ER because of a sudden illness that came on so quickly. The day before I had a extreme headache, lymph nodes were extremely swollen, and aches and pains and throat pain. My heart was also racing. When I got to the ER I didn't have a fever but my heart rate was 141, and my WBC was 19.9. I was just wondering what could have made my count go so high so quickly. thanks
