i have mucus on my left throat. not sure if it is from tonsils or in throat, but it is from left side. this mucus looks exactly like spit, but thick that builds up in the left side of my throat and it hurts sometimes and been feeling week lately, been happening 3 months ago.

At the time of the test I was on an antibotic and a steroid called prednisone, so I dont know if this steroid affected this.

here is the scanned document.

This is Dr. David

I am another expert here.

I got your blood work

the error levels don't really point to any one problem.

your symtoms of mucus in your throat sounds like bad seasonal allergies

have you tried to take benadryl at night time 25-50mg

and also allegra (fexofenedine) 180mg, or claritin, or zyrtec allergy medications.

these are over the counter.

i took this, not allergies. please explain the blood work in detail.

your blood pressure is high.

severe anxiety can cause high blood pressure.

you need to take your blood pressure at home at rest which might be more normal.

ketones in your urine slightly high, that can be from not drinking enough water.

MCHC mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, slightly high, not worrisome if your hemoglobin and hematocrit are normal.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

slightly high neutrophil percentages can be from you fighting off a viral infection. not worrisome if your total WBC count is normal.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

glucose levels are high, but can be normally high after a meal.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

BUN high can be from dehydration, not drinking enough water.

Ask Your Own Medical Question

BUN/CR ratio high is only worrisome if you have a known kidney disorder.

so does this blood results look like my body is fighting off a viral infection or a bacteria infection?

at most a viral infection.

no evidence of bacterial infection (no elevation of WBC count)

dang, then i wonder why the ER uploaded me with antibiotics.

1.) does this blood work indicate any blood cancer potentials?

2.) what tests can I have my doctor run to find out what virus I have?

3.) can it take 3 months or more for body to fight off a virus infection?

no potential for blood cancer. I am a cancer doctor.

there are too many viral infections to test for all of them. with fatigue you can ask your doctors to check for epstein barr virus which causes mononucleosis viral infection.

yes, it can sometimes take a while to fight off viral mono infection.

make sure you take a probiotic daily if you are taking an antibiotic to prevent diarrhea from antibiotics.

one last question.

i noticed on te blood work, it had a high number that said critical for lactic acid. what the heck is this?

Lactic acid levels get higher when strenuous exercise or viral infection

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago

so in conclusion, do you really think I have a viral infection or could that steroid predisone medicine cause my levels?

you very well could have a viral infection.

prednisone usually causes your WBC counts to be elevated.

ask your doctor to be tested for viral infections like epstein barr virus which can cause fatigue.
