Fibromyalgia blood test results?

Question

I have fibromyalgia..and I just had blood work ..my white blood count came up a little high..also my hemoglobin came up a little high also. Is this normal? Also, I am a smoker.

Answer

There seems to be no consistent pattern or blood profile of people with fibromyalgia. It’s also hard to determine if a particular blood finding that is a little high or low relates to the fibromyalgia. Given this, it’s important to get your physician’s perspective on the blood count.
