Actual results?: It would help to see the whole report of total and differential count. There is a considerable range of normal values. It would be useful to consult the doctor who ordered the test. See this site for more info. http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/956278-overview. ...Read more

High white blood cell count green poop low grade fever and chills with headache flu negative strep negative listeria ??

If you have green: poop and fever, then look inside the belly for cause. You may need a CT, or stool culture, or GI workup. If you have headache with fever, perhaps you need to look for meningitis. In other words, have your doctor keep looking for a cause, those tests you listed are only the beginning. Focus on your symptoms and start there. Good luck. ...Read more

16 wks pego. Had 99 fever no more fever now green poop headache cramps chills high white blood cell count red soar throat negative strep negative flu?

Symptoms: First 99 is not a fever. Over 100.5 then you have a fever. A WBC up to 15, 000 is normal in pregnant women. Immodium should help the diarrhea and cramps and cepacol or chloroseptic with tylenol for the throat. Sounds like a viral infection that is not influenza or strep throat (bacterial infection). Most OB's have a list of safe meds. Ask for it, it likely is similar to what I suggest. ...Read more

What is low white blood cell count mean if high fever and sick?

Leukopenia may be...: Counterintuitive, but it is seen frequently in the context of infection/inflammation. Usually we equate illness with a rise in WBC count because we mobilize our wbcs to fight off infections caused by multiple pathogens...Viruses, bacteria, fungi for example. However, inflammatory cytokines can induce transient marrow suppression to cause leukopenia. Should resolve spontaneously. Get well soon. ...Read more
