    high blood cell count lots of symptons?

    hi all,

    i have been really sick for six months docs still have not worked out what it is.
    However on my last three blood test i had high white blood cell count on the three last occassions. also high neutrophils. they don't seem to be worryingly over i geuss. i also continue to have low potssium. and my esr has been raising.

    in the absense of all my symptons i geuss i would not be worried. i fell badly sick in jan and just not getting better. I have liquid retention under my skin, bad headaches and left side pain. Jaw ache and my jaw looks swollen. blurry vision intermittantly. My pain is always bad lying down or waking from sleep. i half wake at night sweating terribly. and when i wake feel like i have done ten rounds with a boxer. My skin has developed spots and is peeling. i have hair loss. symptons are worse at period times. i am terribly nauseas.

    I have not talked through my white cell count with my doc yet. im not sure what to ask accept for to repaet my symptons and ask him why my results are out of range.

    I just can't get better its awful and the symptons have been so acute since january. i feel my health is seriously being left to chance at times.

    Please any advice would be good.

    An increase in neutrophils will cause the high white count. Neturophils are in indication of immune functioning and it sounds like your have something inflammatory going on. I'd get to my doctor and request tests to measure inflammation and keep a symptom journal to take with you. Fever/how high, joint pain/which joints/how bad/, etc. Good luck to you.
