have had constant nausau for 3 weeks & sometimes vomiting, went to Dr. to find out what is wrong. They ran blood tests and everything is within normal range except Absolute Lymphocytes. Dr. did not mention this to me but I was given a summary report and noticed the high value. White blood cell count: 7.8
Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago.


Thank you for the information.

Your total WBC count is normal.

Lymphocyte count is mildly elevated.

There can be a few possibilities.

This can occur due to a viral infection , chronic bacterial infection, whooping cough, Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune reaction or ongoing inflammation.

Cancer or leukemia are also causes of high count but the count usually goes very high.

When you had nausea, vomiting, it is likely to be the cause & can be due to a viral infection or an ongoing inflammation.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

would this slightly elevated level indicate possible kidney or gall bladder stones? Or pancreatitus? it was also mentioned of a possible hernia in the upper part of my body push on my stomach creating pressure?
Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 5 years ago.
This count is not specific for kidney or gall bladder stones

But a chronic inflammation at those sites can be a factor.

Your count is only mildly elevated.

Hernia will not cause it.
