Question: I recently had a blood test that shows my white blood cell count at 11.3, MCV is 104.1 and MCH is 34.2. My doctor asked if I felt ill or maybe had a sinus infection, but the answer is no. Just wondering if this is something to be concerned about. My doctor is 93 years old, and I am a little concerned about this memory.

Brief Answer:
you should get investigated

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to healthcare magic.
Your CBC is showing leukocytosis and large size of RBCs. Raised Leukocyte counts are suggestive of infection (your doctor has rightly enquired about any problem).
It is advisable that you get repeat CBC and get Urine routine and culture. High size of RBC is indicative of deficiency of vitamin B12 and Folate.
You should also get vitamin B12 level.
Then you should review to your physician for the treatment plan.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.

My Mother has C-Diff and can no longer take most antibotic so the question is how do we treat small infections like a sinus infection or a kidney infection. I know the one antibotic she can take is Flagaral but if she takes it to much will it help her when the c-diff acts up again. Also how contagious is it when she isnt sick with it.

Hi last August I had a sinus infection together with what felt like an explosion in my head. This happened 2 months after being put on a second blood pressure tablet and after a course of antibiotics. I had an intense pressure in my head and ears. The problem is still on going and I have had two MRI scans and been cleared through ENT, the second MRI was to look closer at the Trigeminal Nerve (am on Carbamazepine) but all seems normal. The sensations (difficult to discribe) down my right side of my head mainly seem to be coming from the temple area. The neurologist has passed me back to my doctor but said in his letter that they could refer me back to him if needed! I still have not had any real diagnosis. Can you help me please?
