My 20 yr old boyfriend is sleeping 24/7 for 2 wks.  Blood tests, thyroid function, diabetes tests last week, were normal except for a very high wbc.  The doctor told him to get up and get back to work, and keep track of any sharp pains.  Today, both of his legs are sore and he cannot walk.  The doctor will not give him copies of his test results, so he does not know the level of his white blood cells.  Do you have any thoughts or suggestions.

I read the piece where constant high wbc was discussed, and  was interested in your response. I've been diagnosed w/ Lupus - 2/2009 and have been suffering from horrible "bone" pain. Specifically the hips/l-spine/elbows and leg joints. The A.N.A. test was horribly high in Feb - then lowered in March and June. I guess this is due to Prednisone - but, I continue to get high WBC. This weekend I'm going for hips xrays and l-spine - Doc is not being clear and I'm worried.

KerriKnox thank you so  much for the reply on my entry. I know that I have a difficult time maintaining my vitamin levels and I will have the docs check my vitamin D levels next time that I am in!

Thanks again, Aimee
