Ok, so I have been dealing with a mystery illness for months… been to an endocrinologist, oncologist, hematologist, rumatologist and my general doctor trying to figure out why I have neutrophila. I had to wait 9 months because I was pregnant and you can’t have a bone marrow aspiration and biopsy while pregnant. Lucky me, I had 9 months to worry about the state of my health, which in my opinion didn’t help my mental health. Well, I finally had my bone marrow test done on a very cool ct scanner at IMC, which is the best hospital in Utah, I might add. Needless to say, the results were normal, and the oncologist determined my neutrophilia is most likely caused by of all things stress. Are you kidding me? I have been stressed out since 2006? He suggested I figure out how to distress and if my white blood cell count continues to go up in the future, well he was wrong and it wasn’t stress. As my Uncle Brendan says which frustrates me all the time ‘ some things are always a medical mystery”. So, I am lucky that stress is apparently the cause of my lack of energy. Hopefully working out and losing weight will help remedy this. So, I am putting this health issue to rest for the next several years unless my symptoms get worse… but it irritates me that I have put so much money and time into a diagnosis of ” you must just be stressed out and that’s why your white blood cells are high”. This is my luck people.
