  • You are most welcome, Kiki,

    You are most welcome, Kiki, for that and any other question, and especially about menopause that was a most unusual and vast experience in my case.
    It is absolutely understandable that a health professional thinks the worst of any symptom. You indeed need to keep your head up higher, and maintain a great resolve and endurance in your challenges.
    Do keep me posted, and take care❤️

  • Thank you so much Dr. Hana

    Thank you so much Dr. Hana Fayyad for your response! This really means a lot to me that someone else has gone through the same thing and I hope you are doing better now .
    I have a doctors appointment today to check the differentials but my H&H and platelets are normal so I feel a little bit more at ease .
    Being a nurse when something goes wrong I tend to think the worst but I will keep my head up higher now. ☺️
    I will keep you posted .❤️

  • Yes, Kiki, I did.

    Yes, Kiki, I did.
    Notoriously my blood count would be around the level you mentioned, and I would be surprised. Most important here is that the neutrophil( polymorphonuclear cells) percentage is normal, with normal hemoglobin and platelets, most likely thus indicating no need to worry. Let me reassure you here, "estrogens increase the production of autoantibodies in SLE prone mice", so if your low estrogens( because of menopause) have to do with your low WBC, you are better off than being prone to autoimmunity due to high estrogens-which also suppress thyroid function!
    While menopause can cause vanquishing fatigue-it turned me bed ridden, literally, it is crucial in your case to eliminate any other possible cause to your fatigue and concomitant leukopenia( low white cell count), which I did, like vitamin deficiency, drug side effects, endocrine dysfunction, autoimmunity, and chronic infections.
    You may keep me posted.
