After 7 blood tests wbc count is high and sed rate. Twice the wbc was normal. Doctors are stumped and can't figure out why, please help?

Need more info: WBC = white blood cell count. An elevation in WBC (leukocytosis) is commonly due to an infection. Other potential causes include an inflammatory process, which is consistent with an elevated sed rate. WBCs can also be elevated because the body is stressed from some other cause. What may be causing this depends upon how high the WBC has been, and which of the 5 types of WBCs are elevated. ...Read more
