Hi. The raised white blood cells of more than 11,000 may indicate an infection or as a reactionary to some acute problems. If you do not have fever or associated symptoms , wait and re-do the tests after a gap of 2 days. If you have fever and so , please go for an antibiotic course under a supervision of a Doctor. Anxiety can lead to stress and tiredness and vise a versa

Brief Answer: blood culture if necessary. Detailed Answer: Hi. I hope I HAVE ANSWERED YOU. The condition you are going through needs bed rest too. No exercises till you are absolutely fine. If the white cells are still high , your Doctor may advise you for blood culture and further antibiotics can be given as per the reports. TAKE BED REST. PANIC= you can help yourself, try avoiding the medication for panic.
