I've got a low white cell count 2.5 can this be the cause of me feeling totally drained all the time? Thank you in advance (second blood test results)

Maybe: The keys are (1) your differential count; are absolute lymphocytes or absolute neutrohils very low? (2) do you have lupus or some other serious medical problems? I'm thinking of lupus as it can lower WBC's, make you feel horrible with nobody able to find why, and could account for your past pregnancy loss. Just my contribution. Best wishes. Stay proactive. ...Read more

What is a low white cell count?

Infection fighting: Cells are found on top of the red oxygen carrying cells if you let blood settle to the bottom of a tube as a grey-green-white layer. The number and type of these cells vary a huge amount among normal people who can fight off infections. The number needs to get close to Zero before you are unprotected from infection, but can be lowered in most any illness that makes you sick (including colds). ...Read more

Good morning, I have a low white cell count (lymphocytes low at 35%) a borderline CRP and high plasma viscosity of 1.84. What could be causing this?

Good morning, I have a low white cell count (lymphocytes low at 35%) a borderline CRP and high plasma viscosity of 1.84. What could be causing this?

Probably nothing: Percentages mean nothing on the white count. If your absolute neutrophil and absolute lymphcyte counts are anywhere near reference range, stop worrying. The ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end, and the values fluctuate chaotically from hour to hour. I'd ignore the other values if you feel reasonably well, and look at history & physical if seeking illness. ...Read more

Right pelvic pain- went to ER nothing found with a pelvic exam. Just a low white cell count and pain on right side. They are treating it as PID but just is on the ovary side. Please help. I?

Check with OBGYN: Treating it as pid does not mean you have pid. They are treating you for it just in case - a positive culture for infection is the only way to make that diagnosis. In the meantime, did they do an ultrasound? Could be a cyst, or kidney stone, or even appendix.

Check with your obgyn or pcp and good luck. ...Read more
