Since all of you arevery familiar with lab work I have a few questions for you. I saw a Rheumy on Tuesday and she ordered more lab work and x-rays and wants me to see a dermatologist about
some sores.. I go back in two weeks. I'm not sure if anyone remembers me. But i've not been diagnosed with anything yet. I was sent to a rheumy and hematologist because of a high sed rate and platelet count, tiredness and aches and pains.
I've been gathering my own blood work but haven't gotten the blood work results from my hematologist or the rheumy appointment yet(the most important ones) i'm waiting for them to come by mail. the hematologist sent me for a liver scan, she thought my spleen was enlarged, the rheumy got that test back and said it was fine, she went over some of the blood work the hematologist ordered... platelets still high at 560,000. WBC high 15, and she said my iron was low and said it was strange because my rbc was fine. but she said the hematologist will go over that with me.
When my doctor first told me my platelets were high he looked back at blood work i had done about
5 years ago and said they were high then too, along with my wbc. I didn't get a hold of that blood work yet but did get some old blood work from an ER vist in april of 07 and i'd like some help if anyone is able to help.
On this test I was in for abdomenal pain, I thought it was pancreatitis because I have a history of it. It wasn't. They checked for mono and various viruses and everything came back negative. At that time my WBC was 14, platelets were 587,000 and they did a differential. I am just now getting a differential done through the Rheumy (I haven't gotten that yet) Anyway, the one from last years ER visit showed this...
Neutrophils 77 H
Lymphocytes 18 L
Monocytes 3 normal
Eosinophils 4 normal
Basophils 0 normal
ABS Neutrophils 9.50 H
ABS Lmphocytes 3.00 normal
ABS monocytes 0.40 normal
ABS Eosinophils 0.50 H
ABS Basophils 0.00 normal
I also had a CT done that found my Mesentery lymph nodes to be mildy enlarged.
I also had bloodwork done through my pcp that i think is somesort of lupus test
9.7 - 12.0 21.0 - 35.0
my results: 9.5 Low0.9 29.6 normal
and one more things, on and off some of the bloodwork my bilirubin total and my alkaline phosphatate go up and down slightly. the bilirubin is slightly low in a few and normal in the rest and my alk phos is slightly elevated in a few and normal on the rest.
I'm sorry to keep bugging everyone but I know two or more heads are better than one and I dount any of my docs have sat down and looked over all my tests and put two and two together. I know they are checking me for blood cancers and autoimmune diseases right now, i'm just curious if there may be a simpler solution that is being overlooked. Thank you in advance for any help.
