    Hi Wendy

    I get this too, it can be pressure, pain in my head, sinuses, general thick head kind of feeling. I get my bloods done a lot, and my white cell count has never been raised because of menopause . Could you have an infection maybe? Xx

They did a complete work up on my blood all was normal and my white count was up, the doctor told me that he work the emergency room all the time and stress, anxiety, excessive worrying can cause it to go up... decided to google it when i got home and he was right it does say that under several websites... xxoo still makes you wonder but im trying to relax about it❤️❤️❤️
