Hi Dr Stan here to help you today. Your Neutrophils and Lymphocytes go together to comprise your white blood cells. The percentages can change depending on your body reactions. Without knowing the actual numbers of the different cells that are included in your white blood cell count. The change you refer to is not unreasonable. This is probably not the reason you have headaches and fatigue. I hope this is helpful and I am here to answer any additional questions you may have. Please provide a positive rating. Thank you.
I was worried because my wbc was 8.8 in 3/14, then in September 2015 8.5, so pretty stable, but in May it dropped to 6.3
These are both in the normal range.
Fluctuations within the normal range are normal.
It did not drop.
There is no significance to this variation.

Thank you for your agreement
I know it is in normal range, but it still dropped in a short time. That is not my normal from the past. There can be something underlying. You didn't ask my other symptoms. If it keeps dropping as such then that could be a problem. I had requested neuro doctor because he was helping me in regards ***** ***** more in depth. thanks anyway.
You said you were feeling fatigue and headaches. This is not because of the change in your white blood count. The fatigue could be due to being anxious or feeling some depression. The headaches can be caused by a number of other things like muscle tension in your neck, sinus congestion, allergies, vascular causes and anxiety or depression. Please don't stress yourself about the normal changes in your total white blood cell count.
