WBC rising doctor has no idea

I have been off work for 8 weeks now, first went to the doctors with lower back pain and fatigue, he did blood tests and my WBC came back slightly raised, had my WBC retested after two weeks and it had raised further and another test two weeks later is had raised again. Tested a urine sample which showed blood +++ but no infection or protein, had a scan on kidneys and bladder and a cystoscopy which were all fine except cysts on my kidneys which i was told were nothing to worry about.

Had another blood test Monday morning, the doctor rang me Monday evening to say my WBC has gone even higher, white cell count is now 21, neutrophills 17.6 and platelets 563, no inflammatory markers at all and no sign of infection anywhere. Only symptoms are lower back pain, extreme tiredness and itchy skin and constant non visible blood in urine.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what this can be?
