@mariabrat Yes indeed, every facet of my blood tests were setting off bells and whistles! LOL There was no doubt with my blood and my symptoms that I had Acute Myeloid Leukemia. If you click on my avatar you can see my initial posts so I won’t go into detail here.
Our blood is amazingly complex and testing it can reveal so much of what’s going on behind the scenes. You mentioned that your T-cell count is low. T-cells are white blood cells called lymphocytes which fight off diseases. They’re broken down into different types. One of those is the T-cells which respond to viral infections and boost immune function of other cells.
It’s more common to have low lymphocytes than high. It can simply indicate that you’re fighting off a viral infection. It can also be due to aging, immunodeficiency disorders, HIV-aids, genetic disorders, and yes, of course the nasty C word. Have you been had the flu or been tested for CMV or Epstein Barr Virus?
Here’s a link to a Q and A article from Mayo Clinic. The patient was a 16 year old girl but the question was regarding her low white blood count and gives a good explanation as to what it can mean. https://newsnetwork.mayoclinic.org/discussion/tuesday-q-and-a-numerous-conditions-can-lead-to-low-white-blood-cell-count/
Basically, it’s best not to speculate and to just wait and see what the results reveal. That waiting time is the worst though. We fill our heads with so much negative self-talk and stories. It’s draining and counter productive. Truly I can say this from experience. I learned early on not to fear the worst. I faced it head-on and failure was not an option. So whatever awaits, start taking charge now and find a positive place for your mind.
