Monthly I get blood draws. Per my Rheumatologist. This month WBC was 3.7 (in the red) verses last month of 6.5. Is this something that common having RA and I just deal with it ? I’ve not heard from my doctors yet about it. I started Enbrel 2 wks ago but now have to discontinue bc I had a pretty significant reaction. So, next plan is to try Humira.
Anyone else experience low #’s in bloodwork that was addressed ? Thoughts?!?
My total WCC goes up and down from one month to the next. My neutrophil count is also very variable, but always low. My rheumatologist asked for an opinion from haematology who said the neutrophils could drop to 1 before I would need to stop meds. They tend to hover just above 1.Two months ago my haemoglobin started to fall too, all part and parcel of RD.
