Yes, it can: As we always say, "diseases don't read books."it's likely truthful to say there are more unusual presentations of common problems than classical pictures of those same problems. When it's an unusual set of symptoms we tend not to think of textbook diseases when it may very well be the case. The er likely ruled out other things to explain your symptoms. Ergo, mr. Fish likely had the las laugh! ...Read more

Elevated White Count: A count of 12,000 with 96% neutrophils generally points to an acute infection somewhere in your body. It needs to be identified and treated, probably with antibiotics to start. Since the neutrophils are "taking over," the lymphocyte count may appear low, but your doctor needs to evaluate the absolute number to be sure. The important thing is to identify and treat your infection. ...Read more
