    I just got the results of my blood tests (attached as PDF), and it seems my neutrophyl count (highlighted with a black rectangle) is pretty low. Does anyone else have this? Is it connected to CFS? Everything else seems to be normal, but these are just routine blood tests, nothing specific.

    I have been feeling very cold during the day pretty much continuously for the last few months, so I am wondering if low neutrophyles have anything to do with it. What further tests would you recommend?

    The cause for low neutrophils, or neutropenia could be a very long list :

    With low neutrophils and coldness, there could be infection.

    If low copper is a cause, neutropenia and low body temperature may be associated.

    In my own case, there was no neutropenia, but I've had a low body temperature for a long time, that wasn't cured with thyroid meds., or B12. I've been taking copper for 7+ months , and I'm now able to generate a fever, not cold anymore.

    @bananabas this has been a common occurrence for me for the last 26 years, in fact, mine have been lower than yours during a viral episode. I don't worry about it.

    It goes back up on it's own.
