Need CBC report: Your symptoms do not mean anything definite. But the diagnosis is made on the basis of CBC including hb, WBC count, differential count, % lymphocyte count and platelet count. So give us complete results first before we can help you.

Easy to test for: Hi. Ask your doc to do a CBC with differential. If your WBC are elevated and your absolute lymphocyte count is elevated, they will test "flow cytometry" to see if there is a clonal population of lymphocytes (or another white cell population). Good luck!
