I have a consistently low white blood cell count first found two years ago when I had mono. It crept back up to normal but then again fell back down this summer. It's been between 2.5 and 3.9 since august. I had the following tests:
-I had a bone marrow aspiration - No leukemia / No Lymphoma
-I had a blood smear - White blood cells appear large
-Tested negative for lupus, HIV (twice tested) and Rheumatoid arthritis
-I was told I do not have a vitamin B (12?) deficiency.
I went to two hematologists and their answer was to monitor me since I am showing no other symptoms. I had the flu a few weeks ago, but everyone else around me caught it too. I also had a root canal that still got infected and had to repeat the root canal on the same tooth. Other than that, I'm pretty ok.
As for family history, my mother also had a similar issue and her bone marrow tested. I would want to say its genetic, but I don't have a clue where to research this.
What else could this be? What other tests can I ask for? I just want to put a name to this. A clue in any direction would help.
