Likely not say more: Your weekly cbc tests seem unusual but along the way, ask the doc to make a blood smear and check your cells. That would be a good start to see if you need more specific tests, like a viral test since your lymphocytes count varIes and fatigue, may indicate infection, say mononucleosis,but if the peripheral bood smear shows really bad cells, more than those seen in infections,See blood docs.ingat.
