Good luck. ...Read more

Look for a cause of headaches as well -- it may be as simple as needing new eyeglasses. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible that a high white cell count be caused by c.O.P.D, a pituitary gland tumour, or female problems?
How high?: A small elevation in the total white count may be perfectly healthy -- reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside at either end.
