Can a 10 point drop in the WBC cause dizziness?? For over 6 years I have had a WBC of aprx 19. The doctors can find no reason for a high count, and just tell me...I just have a high count. For over a month I have been dizzy...all day, everyday. Went thru all the tests...been to a ENT, Neurologist...and all my test have come back normal. When this first started a month ago...my GP ran a CBC, and she said that my count is down to 11.9. The lowest its been since 2003. In mid dec when they ran a CBC on me it was 19.1. My question is...can a drop like that cause dizziness?? Other than the dizziness, im otherwise healthy. No colds, nothing. I should mention...along with the dizziness I have 24/7 with varying degrees...I sometimes have a tingling sensation in my face when the dizzy episodes come on.
