I recently went to the doctor for a routine check up. While I was there I reported some brusing that I notice on my left thigh and leg. The doctor ordered an ultrasound. Nothing was found. Ordered blood test showed a white blood count of 3.9, CPK 493, Total Bilirubin1.8,Direct Bilirubin 0.3,ABS SEG 2.1. I have muscle pain in my calves and a lower back pain. What can this mean?
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
A low WBC can be due to viral infection, allergy, lupus, hyperthyroid states, hypersplenism, and rheumatoid arthritis. Since you have low back ache arthritis should be looked into.
Low back ache with pain in calves could be due to pinched lumbar spinal nerves. Calf pain can also be due to deep vein thrombosis. Hypothyroidism too should be looked into. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
