hi, I am male 28, from last few months my wbc count come high lymphocytes between 50 to 60% and low neutrophils 35 %. i test every month and every time high lymphocytes and low neutrophils comes. and my symptoms are sore throat, Skin rash & and something joints pain. what do you think my cuses? because my doctor ignore this test why i don't know. thanks
On it's face it looks like your dealing with a Viral infection, the low neutrophils are a bi product of that...meaning your more susceptible to a bacterial infection right now. The high lymphocytes indicate your body is responding to something, my guess a virus.
The "do nothing" approach of the doctor is justified as there are few treatments for your average flu/viral infection/mononucleosis etc...Has your doctor done the standard titer tests for viruses? EBV, CMS, HHV etc...
hi I'm female 30 years old, I just got my cbc test and results indicate that I have 2% higher than the normal lymphocyte count. What does it mean. Please advice because I'm suffering pain with my left ribs below the breast. Thank you
