Anemia?: You apparently misunderstood your doctor. It is impossible for the WBC count to be higher than RBC. However, it sounds like you might be anemic (low RBC) due to iron deficiency. This usually is easy to diagnose and treat. None of this particularly suggests HIV or AIDS, but of course get tested if you have been at risk. Clarify all this with your doctor and follow her or his advice.
