Hi, everyone. I'm not quite sure if this belongs in this group, but I know it's very active and worth asking. Admins, please let me know if you'd like me to remove it.
So about a year ago (maybe a year and a half now), I noticed I was having unexplained weight loss (now about 30% of my total BW!!). I also was having fatigue, hair loss, along with some other non-specific symptoms. I saw a few doctors (I've been under continuous care by a few) with no resolution.
Back in May, I was diagnosed with mild anemia and Lyme disease (it was a crazy diagnosis, never really had the symptoms). We treated both.
Last month, I went in for my routine CBC and iron panel, 3 months after I began supplementing iron. Not two hours later, I get a call from my PCP herself. The iron panel hadn't come in yet, but my WBC was so low she received a call from the lab, I guess they call it "panic low".
I had a follow up CBC two weeks later to make sure it wasn't transient and I still had a low WBC and ANC (I can get the exact labs if that's important).
My PCP ordered a bunch of tests including ANA, complement C3 & C4, Vitamin B12, Folate, Anaplasma, ESR. All of these came back normal. I was under the impression that one of the most common causes of neutropenia in young adults is autoimmune diseases, but my ANA titer was negative. I was referred to a hematologist, but I cannot get in to see them until mid-November.
It's also probably worth mentioning I've had a crazy amount of blood tests done, all seemingly normal so far. Please feel free to ask for specific labs/values if that would be helpful.
Any suggestion or information regarding all of this would be greatly appreciated. Please ask any/all questions that may help you.
