Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. Raised WBC counts could be due to an infection. This is more so as you have responded to antibiotics. The increased pulse rate could be due to the infection, with an added element of anxiety. Sometimes during the toxic state of an infection, there could be vasodilation and a drop in blood pressure. For donating blood you should be screened to rule out infections like hepatitis or HIV. The knots could be lymph nodes.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
