In brief: Interesting question

Do you have polycythemia rubra vera or polycythemia which is assosciated with stress? Have you had a bone marrow examination.
Do you have an hemoglobinopathy? Glad you do not smoke and glad you do not live in high altitudes, because these increase blood counts. Are you an athlete. Do you have any hormonal questions too much testosterone? Please see an hematologist to clarify.
