Complex question: It's not just the number, but how they crowd out normal cells, and how much other problems they cause (elevated calcium, sludging, infiltration of bone, etc.)
would probably need a special online consult to sort this out better.
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health,
