Your CBC: It's good that you're interested in your bloodwork, and nobody here can diagnose you or even say whether illness is present without more data, beginning with "How do you feel?" WBC absolute counts fluctuate wildly even from hour to hour. The best course may just be to repeat the count. Absolute neuts &/or lymphs below 1000 are worrisome but there's no danger until much lower levels.
