Does it mean something is seriously wrong with you?

It could be anything, we dont know what it can be, so i guess its best to try and stay calm and see what the GP has to say.

if it was seriously wrong they would tell you in person or be sending an ambulance asap.

the fact that they want to ring you suggests to me its nothing to serious and not worth you going in and taking up a valubale time slot that someone else could use.

It's usually that there's something wrong with it, not seriously wrong with it. I.e. Blood pressure, cholesterol. They ask you to discuss it so you can discuss various treatments/lifestyle changes. It may even be less than that.

It's nice that they've offered to call really. My old GP just used to say we'll let you know if we need to see you again, and said if everything was OK i wouldn't have to hear from them again. It sounds like it's just a cutesy call.

Thanks for your reassuring replies everyone. Usaually, my GP does not ring if everything is fine (my siblings/parents have had blood tests in the past) so as this is a first time, I am extremely worried something could be very wrong.

Probably something really minor

I am on my friends account now, therefore it does not say I am the thread-starter.

Has your GP actually rung you yet or are you waiting for a phone call. Dont panic, it may be nothing to worry about.

He rang when I was out and my gran picked up. He confirmed that it was regarding the blood test results, but could not discuss them with my gran. I will only be able to find out tommorow now.

If they had discovered something really awful they would have made a much bigger fuss.

I'm presuming you had some blood tests because they were looking for something, right? So the fact they want to discuss the results means that perhaps they found something (I can't speculate more than that as I don't know what symptoms you had and what they were testing for) that answers your questions. This could be a good thing as it means you have an answer, or it could mean that more needs to be done. Either way, don't stress yourself out too much, and just call them back when you can.

No, it doesn't. I've had plenty of doctors phone with normal and abnormal results. The fact they want to discuss it doesn't mean anything until you hear what it is.

Umm... personally, I would be little scared . The only time I've had a phone call from G.P. was when they told me one of my siblings has cancer (and this was few hours after the blood had been taken)...

Don't worry much though...

This isn't a few hours though, which suggests it's considerably less urgent.

OP - what prompted the blood test in the first place, and do you know what it tested for?

I had a couple of health problems such as excessive sweating for no reason whatsoever and continous whole body aches. I am also overweight. So the GP told me to get a blood test done.

Thankyou, that really is reassuring. Hopefully it will be something really petty.

I had a phone call from a doctor telling me that i had glandular fever. So i'm sure it is just something minor like that. Try not to worry. Let us know
