For the last few weeks I have been suffering with terrible shoulder and neck pain. I cant do anything but lay down. I went to my heart dr for a yearly check up of my heart and he ran some tests. I would like to ad that I was put on prednisone 2 days before my blood work. 60 mg a day for 3 days then tapering off, total of 9 days. I also have a blood diesase called thalasemia I have had mos of my life (im 43, female). So my rbc, hemoglobin, hemacrit etc are always low. I compaired all of these I got yesterday to those over the last few years and they are the same as always. So here is my new blood work:
When they have ran segs in past always 50-60
Everything else is normal including Wbc 9.7 and my platelets are normal at 319.
Why would my segs be elevated? could this and the pain in my shoulder be a sign of leukemia? I did start my period yesterday and im on the prednisone. Any help would be great, thanks!
