I've had RA for about 5yrs now,and I've been on subcutaneous MTX and Enbrel for 4 of them, so I should know by now, but I'm confused.
My white cell count is low, (3.5 and neutrophils are 1.79) I'm feeling really fatigued, pain is up, but no inflammation at the moment and the glands in my neck and behind my knees are up, does this correlate?
I thought the point of DMARDS and biological was to dampen the immune system to stop the RA, ie trying to lower white cells, but reading online RA can lower white cell count when it's flaring? Hmmmmm? I'm confused.
Is there anybody who can explain the link between symptoms and white cell count? Or is there none?
All help greatly appreciated x
