Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

It is unusual to have such a constellation of chronic systemic (full body) symptoms so early in pregnancy. I would be curious what the OTHER blood counts are besides your low white blood cell count. This should be reviewed with your doctor to make sure that other things in the blood count are normal. For example, eye pain and headaches could also be a sign of anemia and dehydration (especially if nausea and vomiting have been a problem). Talk with your doctor!

I hope that this helps and good luck! If you would like a more detailed or prompt answer, please consider the Premium Service.
