Question Lupus symptoms

Hi, I wanted to know if anyone ever had a high white count with Lupus?

A high white count indicates you have an infection somewhere. What did the doctor who did the blood work say about the white count? What is that doctor doing for you?

Ask the doctor - you need to understand and it's your doctor's job to help you understand and to answer your questions.

Good luck! Barbara

Thanks so much Barbara - I am still in the early stages of diagnosis. Have been sick for 7 months so far with no great luck. Waiting to see a rhuemotologist right now. Very frustrating.

Have good day.

Hi, I have had an elevated white count several times in the past since being diagnosed with lupus but it's been a while and I don't remember exactly what my doctor said about it. Sorry that I don't have more information for you.

Re: Lupus symptoms

Hi, I am new to this message board but I just had a blood test done since I had very high fever of 104.3. My white count was very high and I was put on steroids, plaquinyl and another immunosupressive drug. I had grandular casts in the urine test and a few blood cast cells. My Dr. will test me again in 2 weeks. Some good information has been posted, thanks!

Re: Lupus symptoms

Yes, I've had elevated WBC. I hope you get a rheumie appt. set up soon & that he (or she) calls for *all* obvious tests right off the bat---meaning not just ANA, which is only a "threshhold" test. That can save time for some people. Also, you could ask for copies of lab results & start your own personal file.

I hope you keep posting here. Meanwhile, good luck! Sincerely, Vee
