Hello and welcome to HCM
is a condition wherein the neutrophils of the blood are increased. Neutrophils are one of the white blood cells which are increased in face of infections especially bacterial infections eg urinary tract infection
, sepsis, etc.
Granulocytosis indicates that there is some focus of infection in your body.
Pain chest & between shoulder blades along with lightheadedness
does not suggest an infection. More investigations need to be done for these problems.
Since, you have a history of GERD, pain below the sternum, in armpit and between shoulder blades can be due to it.
GERD is charaterised by infiltration of neurtophils in the esophageal mucosa but not in the blood.
Thanks and take care
