Might be odd question but ever since having my children I've gone from rarely being ill to being ill all the time with little colds / flus / throat infections etc. Just small things and lots feeling run down but nothing in particular.

I know kids leave you knackered but they are 8 and 9 now! I've been to docs about it and they did blood test and white blood cell count was low but I was sent for further tests a few times and eventually it went back within the the normal range and I was discharged and told it must have been a virus, then more recently I had a general health mot involving fbc and again white blood cell showed low but general health otherwise perfect.
