Customer Question
I have been having...

I have been having a lot of fatigue and lupus/autoimmune type symptoms but my blood tests overall come back normal recently I had a sed of 3, which I know they usually look at it being high, but is that considered too low?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Blood tests not time sensitive but suffering on a daily basis and keep feeling stumped since the drs say everything is normal in my blood tests but I feel horrible

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Just elevated liver enzyms but they ruled that out too wbc was also 4.3. is that considered low?

Also within the last month, I've had unexplained rash on my back and stomach, large swollen lymph node on neck really sensitive to touch, and really bad eye swelling I had to go to the ER for that was unexplained as well. The drs are not sure what is going on since the blood tests don't come back with anything alarming, but I am feeling daily symptoms of fatigue, hungover feel, joint pain, headaches

I just tested positive for SIBO as well but not sure if that explains all my symptoms
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 11 months ago

There are pretty strict criteria

But I suspect you have it

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
