Hi, my GI, Dr sent me to an Oncologist because my white blood cell count is fluctuating. After I saw him his said that I have leukocytotis and ordered a lot of tests, blood test, and Aultrasound of my internal organs. I'm a little scared. I don't know what to expect from this . Please let me know what you all went through. Thank you. Delilah stringfellow.
Hi I'm Lori and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2009 and just diagnosed with Leukocytosis this past September. I am really nervous, as my doctor now wants to refer me to a hematologist for further testing. All I keep thinking is cancer.
I had my blood checked, a CBC a month ago. The blood test came back with high white blood cell count at 14.9 or 14,900. My neutrophils are elevated at 10. I then had blood work for Westergren sed rate that came back fairly normal...a point above normal. I have been taking Tegretol for 10 months. I started at one tablet 100 mg per day, and moved up to 3 tablets 100 mg per day while neurologist added Lyrica also. I also take Seroquel 200 mg tablets at night and was taking 50 mg tabs 3 times a day. I have removed the 50 mg tabs 3 times a day. and take Seroquel 100 mg at bedtime. I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Nerve damage...caused by a dentist/oral maxillofacial surgeon who operated too deep in back of my jaw and then he added kenalog injection a short time later due to chronic pain, and he added kenalog shot to my jaw in from where the nerve comes out of my jawbone in the front. I have been living in excruciating pain since September of 2004. I started taking Tegretol one tablet a day at 100 mg. Then had to add more Tegretol at 100 mg 3 times a day due to increasing pain. Also had Lyrica added, one capsule three times a day. I told my neurologist, Dr. Richard, that Tegretol causes leukocytosis, and he said "no, your WBC would be low, from Tegretol" .. He flat out lied. I don't know what to do. I can cut Seroquel out, but I need Tegretol to control the pain. I have tried numerous times to cut back on Tegretol due to the fear I have of it. What will happen to me? Is there anything other than Tegretol that would relieve this trigeminal nerve damage pain/ trigeminal neuralgia? Or, if I have portion of my nerve cut, and do not take Tegretol, will my white blood cell count return to normal? Call me Fearful. I don't know what to do. I can't let doctors lie to me. I just had my CBC redone by my PCP along with a PB Smear. My Neurologist said it would be interesting for him to know what the findings are. I am so frightened by this all.
