    Raised basophil

    Hi, bit of a long one. Last year I had really bad health anxiety. I was convinced My glands in My neck were swollen and started thinking the worst. Dr reassured me that they were fine but sent me for a blood test. Blood test came back as slightly elevated platelets. A month later I had a repeat, platelets back to normal but slightly raised basophil. She said I might of had an infection or something but not to worry. I said at the time of My second blood test I had a cold sore. Didnít think anymore of it and health anxiety seemed to get a bit better. Fast forward a year and My health anxiety is sky high again. I went to the Drís last week about something and whilst there I mentioned about the blood results from last year. She said to repeat to see how things are. Iím so scared something bad is going to show up! My throat feels all tight like it did last year. Just canít relax and stop thinking about the results.
    Thanks for reading and for any replies. X

    Those are inflammation markers. You had some swollen glands and then a cold sore... Cause = Effect. "Told Ya So Gang" on standby...
