Lab Results Question?

KayDesigner

OK, well Mac got my lab results this morning. Of course, I still haven't heard ONE single word from doctor.

CK levels are still elevated and seem to be rising; however, it showed something new that I don't know about and was wondering, if there was anyone that did...just taking a stab at this to see if anyone's ever dealt with this.

It's showing low regular and absolute Neutrophils counts and high Lymphs levels.

Has anyone ever experienced this?

Hi Kay,

Here a site which explains ANC and the risk of infection based on the count...

Hope this helps a bit...

Kay, my last blood test came back with High Hemoglobin, high Hematocrit, low Mean Platelet volumne and high Neutophils (%).

If I hadn't gotten a copy of my report, I never would have known it.

Now all I have to do is figure it all out.

I called the cardiologist today because I still haven't got my sleep study report back. I asked her to send me a copy. I'm a shallow breather, always have been always will be. I don't need another doctor to tell me what I already know.

Well I have been doing alot of research and the neutrophils and lymphocytes are white blood counts.

I went onto a myositis forum and asked about the levels. Apparently, the reason the my lymphs are high is that MAYBE they are attacking my muscles. They think my muscles are like a virus? Not sure.

Of course this forum ain't NUTHIN' like we are. You may not get an answer for a couple days. Which proves my point, that yes, we are PERFECTION. Wink

Anyways...am having that EMG test done Tuesday and I'm so anxious and scared about that. Funny - I g**gled 'emg test' and was reading this article that had like question and answers.

This is how it went:

Q: Does the EMG Test hurt?

A: Yes.

OK, nuff said about that. Thanks for the blunt answer. I think I'd feel better if Mac were going with me but I understand that he can't.Sad
