You have a chronic: infection on your hands -- most likely viral, such as hepatitis B or C, or HIV or EBV/CMV. Or you may have a liver abscess with such enlarged liver and elevated white blood cell count with corresponding high CRP. Please proceed to see a healthcare professional for proper diagnosis and treatment. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Low grade fever...: ... and high white count is not compatible with the diagnosis of IBS, but suggests either your symptoms need re-evaluation and/or something else is superimposed. Pursue further evaluation--don't give up. Has Crohn's disease been ruled out??
