Question: Lymph % elevated

 rbirring - Thu Jun 10, 2010 10:14 am

I had a CBC done on 1/22/10 and my lymph % was 50.8 and my wbc count was 6.4. After a week the CBC was done, I got severely sick. I had sour throat, non stop cough, and night sweat. It took me over 2 weeks to recover after taking several different medication and antibiotics. Then I reran my cbc on 3/13/10 and everything was normal. I ran my CBC again today on 6/10/10 and my Lymph % is 52.7 and wbc 5.1. The lymph are elevated again. I am just curious to what is going on.Everything else is normal besides lymph. Why is it that Lymphocytes are elevated. I am aware if its something big then my wbc will be elevated as well. Am i going to be getting sick again?
