Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.

I can understand your feelings but are unable to give a correct opinion till the values of the blood count are reviewed, which you have not provided.

Regarding feeling of tiredness and exhaustion there can be mutliple reasons and would have to be seen in light of your age. Some of them can be:
1. Inadeuate sleep
2. Overwork, stress
3. Anaemia
4. Diabetes

I suggest that you consult your doctor with all the reports.

Wishing you all the best.

Thanks for your query,
First of all your WBC count increases in millions.
Just Check in your blood work that there were presence of premature WBC were there or not.?
If it is present then the possibility of Leukemia increases.
