I did check into the emergency room at 11 pm, and I was seen fairly fast, but I still had to stay until 4 am. They took a blood test and found my white blood cell count was really high, which should mean I had an infection, but I had no fever. They wanted to do some CT scans on me because they thought I may have appendicitis. I asked which type was high since I have been treated for eosinophilic esophagitis and they said my neutrophils were high. The number one possible cause of higher neutrophil count online was stress, which I certainly have a lot of right now, but the nurses seemed to not think that was a possibility. After 3 hours of testing, I found out that it wasn't appendicitis and I was discharged with a prescription for a GI cocktail and a recommendation to see another GI doc that I have no interesting in seeing.
Right now I am stressed because I am a busy college student with 8 exams and a surgery in the next 14 days. I honestly have no idea how to decrease my stress without failing all my tests, or how to pass my tests without killing myself. If I dont have any more days like yesterday, I can push through two more weeks, but if that happens again, I have no idea what I will do.
