Then last week started having body pain again then bad headache over the weekend and then sore throat runny nose monday and tuesday. Tuesday night fever up to 38.4 so went to gp next day and wbc count up to 10.1 and rbc 4.36, hgb 126, hct 0.382. This was Wednesday

Today got result from mycoplasma test and tested positive 1:80 and today blood test wnc 8.7, rbc 4.20, hgb 121, hct 0.372.

Just wanna know if these results say something and i shud go back to hospital or just wait and see. Gp said to do another mycoplasma test in a few days.
