I have recently developed intermittent leukopenia (I've had consistent lymphonenia for years). I've been quite unwell over the past few months - anaemia due to increasingly heavy periods - and so have had quite a number of full blood counts done, which is how I am aware of this. I don't know whether the leukopenia is an indication of increasing SLE activity? Grateful for any advice/thoughts. I am due to see the rheumy in 4 weeks time, as a note.
Also, any thoughts as to whether I should have the annual flu jab given the above? Or any experiences of having the jab? I've never had it before but my new GP is pushing for me to have it done.
