Cannot say in your particular case, and if concerned that would be a reason to be examined and treated. Reasons to increase concern is that high blood count is an indication of overwhelming and/or spreading infection.
It is doubtful that it can spread directly to gall bladder, arm, back and ribs without a lot of obvious problems BUT, infection going out from the gall bladder to the surroundings could irritate the diaphram and this is often felt widely. There would also often be increased pain with deep cough. It's serious.
Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
