Hallo Fiona
You probably have a high white cell count which is an indication of infection or inflammation somewhere in the body. Usually one would get an idea with the physical check up where a possible problem may be.
Did he check your heart for irregular beats or signs of heart enlargement too? Did he check your urine? If not, please ask him to look at this too next time you see him.
