Yes I have been tested for absolutely everything under the sun and it still always comes up the same.Increased white blood cells and elevated platelets.


I need to figure out what is going on I am beyond frustrated at this point five years of feeling this way and no clue as to why..

Do you have any other suggestions for me?

Thank you so much for your reply...

Take care, Charity

Whether those elevations are even important depends on how high they are. What does your doctor say about them?

that the numbers are high and no one can figure out why. They just say that my body is fighting itself all the time.

Have you seen a rheumatologist? They deal with RA and some other auto-immune type illnesses. One might put new eyes on the problem.

Take care, Annette
