What do these ongoing CBC readings mean?

I have had low wbc and low neutrophils ongoing for the past few months.  Originally, no symptoms, and first reading was found at normal physical.  Now, fatigue and posterior neck rash.  I was referred to a Hematologist who took the most recent CBC, and wants to wait another 4 weeks.  I am worried something serious is going on, and was hoping someone could shed more light on these results, and whether I should be concerned.

Hi!
Low neutrophils and/or WBC can be due to vitamin B12 deficiency or persistent subclinical viral infection. It can also be due to Lyme or lupus, especially since you have a rash. Thyroid disorder is another possibility. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
