Thank you. My name is***** went to MedExpress, but they were unable to assist me today. I am a hard stick, so they could not get any blood work done. JA: In general, how has your health been lately? Customer: For the past couple of days, I've had reoccurring crampingor muscle spasms in my hands and feet. I just had a physical. My Primary doctor is Sarah XXXXX. Overall, it was good, except. My white blood count was low. I had to go back to take another blood test. My white blood cells are still trace low. I cannot image why this is occuring. JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know? Customer: I have been very fatigued this summer, had many challenges with insomnia and I urinate often. I have many health conditions, but they seem to be under control.
