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.
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!
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
