I have a prior history of C-Diff
and numerous ER visits with
vomiting, diarhea, rectal bleeding (not dark), abdominal pain and WBC of 22,000. I have some confusion as to whether the elevated WBC count can be from anything other than an infection, or virus. Doctors have told me that vomiting and pain can elevate WBC. Is that true, and if so, to 22,000? My primary care physician told me that vomiting and pain would not drive a WBC up to 22,000.
