      WBC is white blood cell count and I wake up nauseated and not long after I'm in the bathroom getting sick and I stay nauseated all day and throughout the day I get sick everything I eat comes right back up. I have dierea and no energy.

      Sounds awful. Can you ask your doc if he'll refer you to a specialist in whatever he thinks your problem is? Trouble is they're all on tight budgets these days so we have to insist most of the time. I don't think the GP can refuse if your ill and worried. We have to be assertive if we need answers sometimes. Take care, Pollyanna. rolleyes

    Certainly there has to be a reason. Did they check urine for infection? 

    Certain antibiotics work only for a particular strain of bacteria.  Is tis white blood count in the blood or urine. If in the urine they need to do a culture to check the bacteria.

      I have had blood drawn and my pea checked every two weeks since mid September and the urine comes back clear and the blood shows that my WBC continues to increase each time.
