Hellow everyone. I noticed i been having a high WBC for almost 2 years now. But in my last 2 exams i also had high leukocytes. I found out about this today and i suffer from health anxiety/hypochondria which made me go crazy about this. The last exam that i did was today and my leukocytes were above 4500. Around 5000ish and googling about the condition got me extremely paranoid and stressed. Im about to have a panic attack because all i see is things about leukemia. I can't sleep or eat after this. I am extremely nervous.
After hours of hopeless research on the internet i came across some cases of this being related to Hashimoto's hypothyroidism which i have. However it is not clear to me since you can't find many info on this online. I am a 27 year old male and i got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism/Hashimoto about 1 year ago. This condition was triggered by a psychiatric medication called Lithium, however it is for life now. Since before i got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism i had briefly researched online about WBC since mine was high...but it was just the overall WBC and not the leukocytes for the longest time. At that time i was on lithium and i thought that this high WBC condition was related to Lithium since one of the well known lithium side effect is a high WBC. However i stopped taking lithium about 4-6 months ago and my WBC still high...and now i got this high leukocytes too. And i am freaking out about this.
I will have to wait days to get a simply appointment at a specialist doctor. I dont know how i will handle my health anxiety until there. It is pretty bad right now and i am fearing for my life like i had a gun pointed to my head where every second pass by slowly and the tension is constantly skyrocketing.
I dont know what to do about this.
Did anyone had a similar condition with high WBC/Leukocytes related to Hashimoto's? Can anyone please give me an insight about this? Im very scared right now to be honest.
This is my blood exam for reference(only showing elevated values):
For quick reference this is what a normal blood exam should look:
WBC: from 3500mm³ to 10500mm³
Lymphocytes: from 900mm³ to 3100mm³
Monocytes: from 200mm³ to 900mm³
And if this is any relevant this is my FSH and LH:
FSH: 2,9 UI/L
LH: 4,0 UI/L
Reference values of FSH and LH:
FSH: Adult Male - 1,5 to 12,4 UI/L
LH: Adult Male - 1,7 to 8,6 UI/L
Pls someone help i need to calm down
