Severe Health Anxiety re: Blood Work
I’m new to the forum and just wanted a safe space to talk.
I had some routine blood work done May 8, and my “off levels” were:
8.3 total protein serum (labeled as high)
4.9 albumin (labeled as high)
3.6 Total WBC (labeled as low)
1.7 absolute neutrophils (labeled as low).
This was a fasting blood test at 8a, after a night of drinking and I had taken Tylenol the day before. Was also my first day of menstruation.
I’m a 28 year old otherwise healthy female. I take Sertraline every day as well. No medical history aside from depression and anxiety. No recent history of illnesses in the last year. I’m physically fit and active and have felt my best as of recently after taking up running during quarantine (I swapped running for CrossFit).
My anxiety regarding these results have been absolutely debilitating.
