I’m a bit of a worry wort and this might be a bit premature, but I thought I’d reach out and see if anyone had any feedback. Since December of 2022, my white blood cell count has suddenly been low on every lab. I even had a second lab a couple of months later to re-confirm this, in addition to another lab recently, which showed white blood cell in addition to low lymphocytes (though just barely below at .9).
I feel great. I don’t really have any symptoms other than I’ve noticed my hair starting to thin. My vitamin D was also low, which was also a norm for me nowadays, and I am going to start taking a D supplement. I do tend to be dehydrated, apparently as my kidney levels are usually showing a high BUN, etc as well. I have been told I need to do one more blood test in a month and then I will be referred to a specialist…but I’m sure that is going to happen, given this has been ongoing for about a year now.
I guess I’m concerned about all the possibilities, and the anticipatory anxiety is just as bad as anything. I don’t know if there could be another cause, such as dehydration, low vitamin D, or even a bad tooth extraction I had lost October which took me a while to get over…but it seems like there has to be some sort of cause. Or does there have to be? Just trying to get a feel for what I am up against here! =-/
