i had blood work done today as I have been having some strange pain in my left leg...(thinking a blod clot), however, the d-dimer, ptt and cmp were normal, my pt was low along with my wbc and neutrophils and my monocytes were high...I would like to know what this means
I read your question and i understand your concern. Leg pain with normal work up is fine. Slightly low pt and high leukocytes are found in some acute infection or inflammation. Needs complete clinical correlation and management accordingly.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
