Hi!
Elevated WBC or leukocytosis may be caused by several conditions including bacterial infection, inflammation, leukemia, lymphoma, trauma, use of certain drugs (steroids, antiseizure medications), myeloproliferative disorders of the bone marrow (chronic myelogenous leukemia, polycythemia vera, myelofibrosis, essential thrombocythemia), inflammatory bowel disorders (Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis), burns or stress (physical or emotional).  Depending on your symptoms further evaluation will be required.
High neutrophils are seen in acute bacterial, viral and fungal infections such as abscesses, furuncles, tonsillitis, diphtheria, otitis media, appendicitis, cholecystitis, osteomyelitis, meningitis, plague, salpingitis, and peritonitis. Neutrophilia can also occur in noninfectious conditions, such as acute myocardial infarction, burns, postoperative, acute gout attacks, acute glomerulonephritis, collagen vascular diseases, rheumatic fever, and hypersensitivity reactions.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
