I've been a lurker to this sub for a couple weeks now, I've been trying to search through the sub history to see if anyone has had similar issues to myself. I am a 29 year old male living in the US. 170lbs and 5'7. I have been having some health related concerns for about half a year now with no real answers.
It started in September of 2016 when I noticed a slight pain in my thoracic spine, I figured that it was a combination of sitting at my desk job and bartending part time. Overtime, this discomfort would come and go, sometimes it would be more pronounced and sometimes it would go away. That has been the case still to this day. The pain hasn't been super severe, and it is very tolerable.
What I am concerned about is my recent blood tests. In the doctors quest to find out what has been ailing me, they initially had a CBC preformed and subsequent follow-ups to track the results. As you can see by the link below, I have had slightly elevated WBCs and Abs Lymphocytes, and as you can see they have fluctuated a little bit. What has concerned me (and not my PCP) is my most recent Abs Lymphocyte count which is at 4600/cu mm. It is my understanding that at 5000/cu mm, a patient would be diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia). Am I reasonable in my concerns considering my levels are 400 away from that 5000 threshold?
I apologize for the rambling, but this has me very concerned and unsure what to do next. Any doctors or patients have experience with this, I would greatly appreciate your input!
