Thank you for posting a query.

Look, the hematology report indicates that the polymorphs are increased than normal. Lymphocytes are also decreased. This indicates possibility of bacterial infection which is acute in nature.

C reactive protein is also high. It also indicates a possibility of acute infection.

The liver function test is not a problem. The GGT is not in very high range.

So, right now, you are suffering from an acute bacterial infection.

Your description of present symptoms are indicative of a possibility of doctor for a clinical correlation and for ordering a routine urine examination. Depending upon the findings, a broad spectrum antibiotic like ciprofloxacin should be considered to treat the condition.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.
