Hello dear Netta, thank you for your question
White blood cells or leukocytes are one of the components of blood cells in addition to red blood cells (erythrocytes) and platelets (platelets). These cells play an important role in the human immune system, especially in dealing with microorganisms or foreign objects that enter the body. Decreased white blood cells or leukopenia can be caused by various conditions. Here are some of them:
infection, especially with almost all viruses (including influenza, measles, rubella, dengue, HIV, etc.) and some types of bacteria (such as tuberculosis, typhus)
autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, which often involves joints and cause pain
side effects of drugs, such as certain antibiotics that cause damage to white blood cells, chemotherapy, corticosteroids
deficiency of vitamins, especially B12, zinc, folate, and copper
bone marrow related diseases
cancer, whether that occurs primarily in the bone marrow or secondary to the spread (metastasis) of other cancers
To determine whether your joint pain is related to the results of previous blood tests, you should consult your doctor who previously treated you. In addition to a physical exam, your doctor may order repeat blood tests to confirm previous findings. The doctor can also add a serological examination to confirm the presence of antibodies against certain viruses or bacteria. While waiting for the doctor's examination, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol to relieve the pain that appears, but it is still recommended to use this drug according to the rules of use listed on the packaging.
