My white blood cell count has been low the past few months. So I figured this is why I got sick, (a sore throat/running nose etc) this past week. & before that was my ear infection. As I was googling I found that folic acid contributes to the production of white and red blood cells. & well I haven't been taking my folic acid. So I then realized I had caused this myself. This is what I THOUGHT! Buuuut a few days ago they said it was at a 3.5 and 3.8 is normal so it had went up on the last blood test. (The one i took before realizing i better start taking my folic acid again) So i'm not so sure anymore. Either way i'm back onto taking folic acid daily as well as a daily vitamin (the adult gummy ones! yum!) Other weird things that have been happening was that 2-3 weeks ago i started developing red marks of some sort on my hands, near the corner of my eyes and one on my chest. This was the main reason I was googling side effects of different things. I still don't know exactly what it is but it has been getting better since I started back on folic acid so I'll have to bring this up to my rheumy when I see him next month.
Other then that i'm still doing the syringes for my Enbrel and i'm still getting the site reactions :( red, puffy and itchy! *sigh* It's worth it right now though cause I have been feeling pain free lately.
On a brighter note I am going to disneyland & cali adventures with my boyfriend and my cousin and her man on the 21st. So we will get to see the new world of color! i'm so excited! :D
