I've been seeing my General Practitioner for the past 10 months and my bloods have shown on 4 separate occasions that my WCC is slightly raised and my white cell differential shows lymphocytosis. I am feeling pretty unwell and have recently become increasingly unwell. I suffer with excessive sweating and night sweats, slightly raised temperature, severe itching, abdominal swelling and other gastric and bowel symptoms, unrelenting tiredness and have suddenly developed a golf ball sized swelling just above the cubital fossa region of my left arm. My doctor has suggested that the raised WCC and lymphocytosis are probably due to infection and not to worry about them. I have recently become prone to picking up coughs and colds, URTIs, UTI's and various other minor infections but the symptoms do evenually resolve. If it wasn't for the fact that I feel so unwell I wouldn't worry about the results. Is it possible to have a persistant infection lasting 10 months and could my results and symptoms suggest anything else? My liver and kidney fuction are ok, no evidence of mononucleosis, thyroid is normal, no anaemia, ESR normal. I'm desperate to get to the bottom of my symptoms.
