Can anyone tell me if you have struggled with labs looking like a train wreck? Like magnesium and potassium levels dropping and really high WBC count? I have been on methotrexate for 6 wks and my rhemotologist took me off because i was starting to get a cold. Have only been off a week and wbc count is up again already?
WBC can be up from disease activity.
I would trust that unless the doc shows concern over something, it's just normal for you.
Thank you for the information. I hair want some kind of control over this
I was on Methotrexate injections, I took myself off of it because I was sick all last spring and summer. My immune system really sucked! I caught everything. My W.B.C. was always elevated. It is back to normal now. I just took the Vectra test to track where I am at I am Moderate right now. Which means my Rheum. will not add any meds at this time. He has not seen me since I just stopped my Methotrexate. We will see how I am in another 2 months. Best Wishes!
