WHich one are you on now?
i am on doxycycline noe only been on them for 2 days
Okay, you need to give it more time to work
the cat scan come back with a fatty liver
I see, then you should stop drinking alcohol
i dont drink
Okay, then you should give the antibiotics time to work
do you think this is anythink seriously
If your WBC is still high after a week then you should try levaquin
I think it will drop with time
what is levaquin use for
It is an antibiotic
A very good antibiotic
what type of infection is it use for
It is useful for all types of infections, that is why I recommend it
do you think my wbc are seriously to high i have been getting worried over leukaemia
I think this is the residual effects of an infection, not leukemia
Are you there?
is it true that with leukemia you have one main wbc thats is elevated and the rest stay normal
There are different types of leukemia, most have abnormal WBC's
Do you have anxiety disorder?
is wbc of 17 dangersouly high and i have been under alot of stress the last couple of weeks
No, it is not dangerously high
can stress make my wbc go up to 17 that high
Yes, that is possible
also i have had black circles under my eyes
ok, that may be from stress
and chest pain
Okay, then you should have an EKG
i had a ecg and that was fine
Okay, then the next thing you need is a chest CT scan
is that looking at my heart
No, it looks at your whole chest
i had a chest x ray done two days ago that was fine
The test I recommended is a CT scan of your chest , not a chest x ray
ok what do you think my symptoms are
and what dose off levaquin should i take
You may have an infection, your symptoms don't point to anything in particular
the dose of levaquin is 750mg daily for 7 days
do you think that will clear it up is that a good antibiotics
Yes, I think it will clear it up
Is there anything else you would like to ask on this topic?
yes can cat scans pick up stomach ulcers
No, they rarely pick them up
would a stomach ulcer make my wbc go up
Yes, it could
so you recommend i get a cat scan of the chest and go levaquin
Yes, that is what I recommend
