Greetings. I am a 38 y/o female with two young children. For the last few years I have had an elevated WBC with various inflammation symptoms. In the last month I have had a chronic distended abdomen (looks like I did when I was full term pregnant), pain under my left rib cage area and lower back pain, swelling throughout my body and a rapid weight gain of 10 lbs, I also have pain in my spine and feel pressure in my neck around my throat which sometimes makes me gag. Yesterday, I saw an OB/GYN and he is running more blood. He suggested that I see an oncologist/hematologist for my recurring elevated WBC. I also started this week having what appears to be petachiae on my lower legs and tops of my feet. Some have started turning purplish in color but the smaller tiny dots are red. They do not itch and it is not razor burn because it's on the top of my feet. I do have bouts of diahrrea. Lately the fatigue is just horrible. I have difficulty getting out of bed to take care of my girls and my quality of life has been low.

I have had blood work done by an immunologist and PCP that all show:

Elevated WBC - 13
High Eosophils
High Neutrophils
low MCHC
High CRP
Low Alb/Glob
High IgM levels

I have had a negative ANA so I am ruling out Lupus although my symptoms do line up with it. Thyroid is within normal range. Had a colonoscopy and endoscopy a couple years ago and everything was fine.

Has anyone had similar blood test results and/or symptoms? I know it may be awhile before I get an appt with the oncologist as they have to collect all of the lab work and review it before they will even schedule an appt. Are there any other steps I should be taking other than documentation? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
