Hmmmm....Bear with me...

I'm just venting here so bear with me. For the past year I've had some stomach pains and lately they've gotten really painful. So I went to the Dr. today and after a urine test I was informed my white blood cells in there were through the roof! Well, I don't have any symptoms of an infection dealing with that area but they're going to test it more to see what they can find. Also, I had a blood test today and if it's anything like last year the white blood cells are going to be really high too. After last year with antibiotics my WBC's never went down much and I just let it go for the time being. I'm growing really anxious to know what's really wrong with me and why they won't go down. I'm currently on two antibiotics to see what will happen and see if my WBC's go down at all on Thursday when I go back to the Dr. Have any of you out there been through this at all and can offer me any advice? I don't have any symptoms of the obvious like the usual sickness would show. I have lost my appetite and have lost some weight but not too dramatically. My clothes don't fit anymore from just a month or two ago...

I guess all I can ask you for as friends, casual readers and people I don't know is for any good thoughts, advice, prayers, good karma that you can send my way.
I may be jumping to the worst of the situation but who knows if this has been the same for over a year.

So thank you in advance for reading this post and still loving me! Really, any advice would be very much appreciated.

I really have no idea what the problem might be but I would recommend getting the western blot test. I think it's just a blood test but gives results for several kinds of problems. I am no dr. so I don't know how helpful that would be in your case but it's an idea that came to mind. Good luck! Keep us posted.

Gosh Heather. I'm so sorry to hear you are having health issues again. I'm not really familiar with White Blood Cells and what they could indicate, but I will do some research and let you know if I come up with any good ideas of things that could help.
In the mean time I will pray for you. I know the Lord is fully aware of your situation and he knows what you will need to get better. I'm confident that a solution will be found. Hang in there girl, you are loved!!!

I have no advice, as I'm completely ignorant when it comes to all things medical, but I will definitely keep you in my thoughts and prayers!
