Usually not related: Typically spinal changes on Lumbar MRI with abnormal blood test results are not related. However, there is an uncommon condition called discitis which is an infection of the disc. Typically there is a preceding surgery, trauma or infection elsewhere. Again this is not very common. I would speak to your internist to evaluate other causes of elevated CBC and keep the spine idea in the back of mind.
