I took my 8 year daughter to the Dr a couple months ago because she has extreme bone pain. It started when he was little (like 2) and the Drs said it was growing pains and to massage her legs with icy hot r bengay. So for years we did that but it recently got so bad that she has been unable to walk at times and she can not stand to be touched because it hurts so bad. So anyways the drs did a bunch of tests and did some blood tests.. Well the first set came back with her white blood cell **** being really low. So they said to repeat the test in a month so we did and it came back a little higher but still very low.
But when the drs office called me to tell me the reults they said everything was normal and two days later I recieved a call from the health department that the results were not normal and I needed to make sure they did further testing. So I took her back for a third time and this time they did a whole lot of blood tests.
Her WBC coun was still low (it did go up another point but still low) and her carbon dioxide level is also low. The lupus test and rheumatoid factor came back negeative. Anyways the drs are not giving me any answers at all and I am a nursing student so I know having low white blood cells is not a good thing. If anybody has any suggestions please let me know... Thank you.
