Wink Low white blood cell count & MS?

Hi!

I was wondering if anyone has had a low white blood cell count. My Doctor does not think that it has anything to do with MS as it is Very low .. although I am in attack mode at the moment.... Apart from the MS stuff ( been dx'd for 10 yrs now) I am really healthy and haven't even had a cold for the past year. ( I have been on the Swank MS diet and doing the sun therapy for 3 years now)

Cheers,
Melody

Melody, are you on DMD's or other medications? They can sometimes cause a drop in white blood cell counts.

Re: Low white blood cell count & MS?

Hi Kim blessed,

Nope! Thats the thing, I'm on nothing and it has dropped. I still think that it may have something to do with the fact that I have had some of my old symptoms come back recently. Just thought that others may have had the same thing happen too...

Thanks heaps,
Cheers,
Melody

Melody, well I guess you will need to let the doc's figure it out. Right now just try to avoid any sick people and keep yourself as well as you can. Keep us up to date! Try not to stress about it because it will not help with your MS. ((hugs))

Melody,

Did you find out why your WBC is low?
