Very High White Blood Cell Count...Honest Advice Required

Hi guys,

Not really sure what to say to introduce myself, so I will just come out with what I have found out from my girlfriend today.

She went to the doctors this morning thinking she had a throat infection, and she was immediately sent to be tested for mumps. The results came back and it wasn't mumps but the results have said she has a very high white blood cell count of 37500. She is a nurse herself so she is obviously very worried. She says she is fine except for her throat, but because of the high white blood cell count, we are both petrified.

Has anyone got any advice or thoughts? I know it might be something other than the obvious but I am fearing the worst .

Thanks in advance.
