WBC question please help
This is my first post, so i'll give you a background real fast. I went to the doctor for a hurt back and they took my blood work since it was my first visit. I got a phone call saying my White Blood Cell count was 19.5 and I needed to come in right away and do another lab. That lab has come back and again it's 19.5.
I am 22 years old, and i've never been really healthy. I took HGH (Human Growth Hormone) for 12 years starting at age 4. When I got into High School I stopped HGH but my energy levels slowly decreased. Nowadays I can't work because I have no energy, I can sleep 14-16 hours straight, and sometimes I can't even lift my head off the bed. It feels like someone is sucking the life out of me.
March 12th I have an appointment with the University of Oncology and Hematology Assoc. so my question is...what can I expect and how bad is a WBC of 19.5? I was told by my doc that I have no energy because my WBC is so high. I received a paper on Leukemia and Leukocytosis so I thought this message board was appropriate. Thanks so much for the advice.
P.S. I have a small family history of leukemia.
