Very high White Blood Cell counts may be an ANEMIA sign / NOT an infection as is generally thought.

...  the immune system prematurely destroying the red blood cells, and you have an excessive number of white blood cells added to the mix.  On top of that we have been blaming virus for FLU an injecting virus & many types of antibiotics into our people for 70+ years.  No wonder there is MRSA!

spikes RBCs?   * LEUKEMOID REACTION
    Classically, in IMHA the stimulation of the bone marrow is so strong that even the white blood cells lines (which have very little to do with this disease but which also are born and incubate in the bone marrow along side the red blood cells) are stimulated. This leads to white blood cell counts that are spectacularly high.

COOMB'S TEST (ALSO CALLED A "DIRECT ANTIBODY TEST")

This is a test designed to identify antibodies coating red blood cell surfaces.  This test is the current state of the art for the diagnosis of IMHA but, unfortunately, it is not as helpful as it might seem.  It can be erroneously positive in the presence of inflammation or infectious disease (which might lead to harmless attachment of antibody to red cell surfaces) or in the event of prior blood transfusion (ultimately transfused red cells are removed from the immune system). The Coomb's test can be erroneously negative for a number of reasons as well. If the clinical picture fits with IMHA, often the Coomb's test is skipped.  

So what does an excessive number of high white blood cells do when there is an AUTOIMMUNE System? In this 'setting' (of autoimmune hemolytic anemia or immune mediated hemolytic anemia) ... things like DDD, pariodontal disease (connective tissue disorder) http://www.valdezlink.com/pages/jaundiceandfatigue.htm

Three examples of this:
  • Bill Cairns on Mystery Diagnosis comes down with GBS two weeks after 'flu symptoms'  *
  • A bank teller in our town:   
    This lady stood too close to someone for a short time who must have been poisoned by such a chemical, in 2 days she had
    autoimmune meningitis  www.valdezlink.com/re/j2.htm
  • Right now in our town a young woman is taken to hospital for 5th time in two weeks having had operation for removal of kidney stones; has serious fatigue, high white blood cells; relative shares on facebook that she now has kidney failure.
I think the root issue of each of these is a chemical exposure that causes multiple autoimmune issues (& multiple combinations thereof) so of course, no two people will look the same
 
I have looked into the harm of the most often found glycol ether, 2-butoxyethanol, extensively for past 8 years because someone in my family was harmed by it working on biorememdiation experiment (spray 'n washing beaches with this poison) in Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanup, 89 - 90
 
& other groups, like the 'gulf war syndrome vets'
civilians with CFIDS (CFS & FM as subsets)
 
The autoimmune nervous system must be what is causing the rage / depression / suicidal tendencies
