Also leukemia would mean freakishly high levels, wouldn't it?

Yes that's generally what I hear from drs but idiots put  that it can be low in some cases because of some bull rap idea that the white cells are crowded or something idk.......I just want to feel good and be happy I'm always worried about SOMETHING , I asked for blood tests and my doc started laughing she said I'm looking good and healthy but she did it. Anyway this 3.3  just scared me I should've never called the lab...

This site amazes me with it's responses to calm someone .....

What amazes me is that even though the lab and doctor say you are okay you still think something is wrong. If you keep that logic then why even go to the doctor. We are here to help you get over your anxiety, not just calm you down.

We are not doctors and we can't give you medical advice. But since you posted your CBC counts with no scale for reference then we really can't answer your question besides the fact that your doctor said they were okay.

docs know when things are wrong with blood work.


my daughter had blood work a while back.  she was having some issues.  her pediatrician called and told me which tests were abnormal and we were referred to a rheumatologist.  we saw her.  we went through the whole exam and more blood work.  the rheumy asked me, "You think it is nothing don't you?"  I said, "I know it isn't ___.  My mom had that.  Maybe it could be ____"  the rheumy told me, "In the 25+ yrs in practice I have NEVER had numbers like this and it be nothing."

So what should that tell you?

It should tell you that doctors KNOW when blood work is abnormal and needs further investigation.

If yor doc isn't worried, then you shouldn't be either.  and if you don't believe the expertise of docs or the validity of the tests, you shouldn't go through the expense or time of seeking a doc's advice or testing.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

my advice?  I thought my post kinda said it.

my advice is to quit searching for a diagnosis you don't have.  doctors know their jobs.  My advice is to deal with the issue you really have so you can lead mentally healthy life.

Kind of what sixpack stated above, doctors know their jobs... you go to the doctor because you respect their opinions and analysis of your condition, otherwise it is a fruitless effort. When the doctor states you are okay after running tests, then you have to accept the fact that they have hard evidence to suggest nothing is wrong.

You are here because you are still worried, which means you do have come face to face on how to control your anxiety and to make it stop controlling your life.

Have you talked to your doctor about anxiety? Maybe getting some professional help and someone to talk with to see if their is a root issue at hand? 

To be honest, I posted a thread here a few days ago explaining it, but about 5 different things had to come together for me. All of them changed my life in a different way. I had everything from God, to a wife, professional help, accepting the fact I can't control everything and prevent everything, and a little bit medication to help get me started.

It is a constant struggle because that little voice of doubt will always be there, it is only you that can ignore it and put it aside and trust that everything is okay.

I'm confused because 3.3 is a low wbc, but they told me everything was fine, so that makes me wonder "since I had to call to figure that out " "are they hiding something else form me"? And this spleen area discomfort and weakness in arms is gonna make me go insane

I am sorry.  I TRY to give supportive posts but I am just flabbergasted here.

your last post borders on paranoia.   why in the H*ll  would medical professionals be "hiding" something from you????   that really does take the cake on HA thinking
