Infection: If your WBC is elevated it usually means an underlying infective process is going on. Why were you in ER if you were feeling well. If you are flushed then you may be having a fever as well. The doctors would interpret the WBC in relation to your other blood tests and symptoms

Keep record of temp: (after actually measuring it), and see if a fever over 99.6 correlates to your feeling of flushed face, tiredness and dizziness. And keep your appointment for retesting, as it sounds like something is going on. It may not be possible to diagnose until more symptoms emerge. Drink PLENTY of fluids, especially salty ones, and rest. Good luck!
