Maybe infection,,,: From your information, it looks like you've got infection. Your white count is high and that is a very telling sign of infection which could be a complication of your endometriosis. You'd need an aids test and would have other general signs like long standing fever and not necessarily abdominal pain and wouldn't have such a high white count for aids. Best of luck. ...Read more

Thick blood , high inflammation levels abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?

Thick blood , high inflammation levels  abnormal liver function in all 3 blood tests, test  back pos for blood clot on lung after dye test, back neg?

This is serious: I trust the dye test was a pulmonary angiogram that demonstrated a pulmonary thromboembolus, and it has also been determined that you have hypercoagulable blood. This is a major problem that will require work with your primary care physician and probably long-term medical management -- more than healthtap can do. Hope you do not smoke. The "inflammation" & liver labs need to be addressed in time. ...Read more

Just did Complete Blood Test... Everything normal except RBC - 6.5 M/uL, MCV - 70.7fl, MCH 22.3pg and Platelets 105K/uL. Please why could the platelet?

Lots of stuff: I suspect you have beta thalassemia minor and this is good to know in case you plan to marry someone else who has it too. The platelets are a wee bit low and this isn't from "thal minor"; and there can be lots of different causes; you're in no danger from it, but I suggest it get repeated sometime soon. ...Read more
