well, i've had a number of blood tests over the last few years due to extreme tiredness...every time, the results showed a low white blood cell count, which the doctors initially put off as the result of my body fighting off a cold or something...but, it keeps coming up and i was sent to a blood specialist who said 'yeah they're low but not low enough to do anything about...' (a$$)well, i just had some tests done last week and AGAIN, the white cells are low and again, i've been extremely tired...the tests showed that everything else is normal---no thyroid or anemic problems...and my doctor isn't going to do anything...can anything be done?? i've read that a good diet can help, but that's really hard since i have ibs and my stomach can't handle many of the 'healthy' foods.
could there be an underlying problem?? does anyone have any experience with this stuff??any comments/advice would be appreciated!
