About 5 months ago I went to the Dr with really bad stomach pains, I had all sorts of tests and it came back that my white blood cell count was high. So the Dr thought it might have something to do with my pains, so I waited a month, my pain had gone and I had another blood test. She told me she would ring if it was still high and if I don't hear from her it's fine. I didn't hear from her so i thought everythings good. Then yesterday 3 1/2 months later I get a vague letter from the Drs saying I need a repeat blood test, on the form it said reason,high white cell count.. So now im freaking out again. The first thing that comes to mind when you hear high white cell count is leukemia, but surely she wouldn't wait months if that was the case? I can't get a Drs appointment until next week so I was just wondering if anyone else has had high white cell count and why was it caused?
Thank you :)
