    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
