My LLMD called and told me that my last blood test showed a low white cell count. All other tests up until now have been normal. Thay had me go and have it redrawn today and we are awaiting the results of that test.
Has anyone had this happen? I have no energy the last couple of days, flu like symptoms, swollen groin lymph nodes, and think I just went through a bart die off cause of sweats and chills yesterday and all last night.
They said that if the second test comes back low again, I would be taken off the my abx's for a while.
I started cruising the web and see that a low white count can mean lymphoma. I know I'm panicing a bit but I just don't ever feel well and wonder if it might be that.
Is is common in Lyme Patients on abx for a long time to have the white cell count plummate?
