I'll try my best to describe the situation that has been worrying me for the past two weeks. It started with me coming down with some sort of virus, which did not confront me with any unusual symptoms. After I had seemingly recovered, I had a brief spell of vomiting and diarrhoea, which I thought had been nothing worrying, up until it started to stretch over a greater period of time. After a few days of moderate pain, I became victim to multiple anxiety issues, because the of the fact my local GP did not seem to be able to help me at the time, recommending only rest and bland foods. I thought that my condition may be more severe than a stomach bug, though I had not had diarrhoea or vomiting in a few days. At this point I was eating very little and was still experiencing pains in my stomach regions, however I did not seem to be fatigued, or experiencing any other symptoms such as fever. I decided to seek medical attention again, and was processed differently upon returning. Multiple tests were conducted, including a blood test. The evaluation of this concluded that I had a raised amount of white blood cells per ml in my blood, around 12000 to be exact. I wasn't too worried, as I usually come up with high levels regardless of sickness (usually around 10000). The test results have taken a while, and since first experiencing these pains it has been nearly two weeks. I tried to reintroduce normal foods, with no strongly amplified effect, however the pains have not gone. Upon applying pressure on my stomach, there is pains spread evenly throughout the affected areas, leading me to believe I am not dealing with appendicitis. The pains are not sharp, but they are constant and more comparable with a constantly bloated and irritated stomach. Does anyone know of similar symptoms being treated effectively? Do I need to seek medical attention again?
