Okay, here's the question in a nutshell..I went to get lab results today from my gp and out of the blue, my gp said, hey! It looks like you have some sort of viral infection, but don't worry, it'll work itself out. The bloodwork was ordered for thyroid and frequent menstrual cycles. I tried to ask several times, but got no satisfying answer. What kind of viral infection could I possibly have? Other than lots of stress over the last few months and feeling exhausted, would I not be having any other symptoms? No stomach flu, no colds or sore throats and absolutely no possibility of an std or anything like that. I am very confused and a little bit worried.
Thanks for your help!
I'll need to know what tests your GP administered with the results in order to tell you why he thought that you might have been experiencing a viral infection. I suppose that one of the tests performed was a standard blood count. If your lymphocytesâ count was elevated this would indicate a viral infection.
