My HA has been so bad since last month when I had my CBC done and it showed an elevated lymphocyte count. Last Saturday, I had a repeat CBC in urgent care and now my lymphocyte count went higher and my WBC count is elevated as well. It concerns me because I have no infection anywhere, no cough, no colds, negative test for UTI during both times. I'm scared that it might be chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). I know that CLL progresses slowly with rising WBC and lymphocyte count as time goes by and wouldn't show any symptom in the early stages. My doctor ordered for a repeat CBC in a month, and it's driving me crazy that I have to wait for a month!
These are the results of my WBC and lymphocyte counts on August 16 and September 21:
WBC (normal range: 4.0 - 11.0):
August 16 = 9.4
September 21 = 11.6
Absolute Lymphocyte Count (normal range: 1.2 - 3.4)
August 18 = 3.8
September 21 = 4.3
My % lymphocytes were normal on both dates, so my doctor said it shouldn't be something bad. But I read somewhere that the absolute lymphocyte count is more relevant than the % lymphocytes.
I'm REALLY scared that this is CLL that's progressing!
I have to wait for one month before finding out what's wrong! It's driving me crazy! My son and bf are really affected by my anxiety and depression over this
