I am crying because I am soooo frustrated and confused. Went to my PCP today to talk over some weird rashes I have been getting and my not sleeping and such and she was really sweet and took time to listen. She also ordered a bunch of blood work and since I work for the hospital I can know the results fast.
The CBC came back:
WBC 13.7 H (normal range 4.0-11.0)
Hgb 16.3 H (normal range 11.7-15.5)
HCT 47.2 H (normal range 36-46)
Lymph % 19.9 L (normal range 22-41)
Gran Abs 9.4 H (normal range 1.7-7.7)
Mono Abs 1.2 H (normal range 0.2-1.0)
My sed rate was normal.
She is also testing my thyroid, liver enzymes, and something called mitochondrial AB titer (whatever that is).
The bladder infection I had cleared up weeks ago and I am still dealing with the thrush from the use of the antibiotics to clear up the thrush.
Now all these weird lab results. Does anyone know what Hgb, HCT, Lymph %, Gran Abs or Mono Abs is?
Every single week for the last two months I have been at one doctor or another with stuff going on but am not getting any real answers as to why I feel so bad and I am more upset now than ever. I just don't know what is going on and why I feel so bad all the time and it is just overwhelming right now. I just want an answer. I asked the PCP today if the weird rashes could mean a flare of lupus and she wasn't sure. She has referred me onto a dermatologist (yet another doctor) and I can't get in to see her until November. Will this never-ending roller coaster ride ever end or am I doomed to this for the rest of my life? I am desperate for any help anyone can give.
I know this was long but guess I needed a good vent session as well.
