Severe headache, not responding to migraine treatments, tests show high WBC, eosinophil count. Any thoughts?

My 18 year old daughter has a severe headache that has not responded to the typical migraine treatments. She is inpatient at a local hospital and they have been running some blood work. They have been running CBC s and CMP s. Initially her WBC was in range. Now it is slightly elevated. Particularly, her Eosinophil count was .1% and is now 10% and is trending up. The doctor that is overseeing her admit is not interested in investigating this trend, even though her headache is not decreasing. Any thoughts?

dear user
welcome to HCM
raised eosinophils with raised TLC and severe headache these symptoms are indicating involvement of sinuses
go for routine stool examination to rule out parasitic infestation as eosinophills are raised
go for x ray of head om view for sinusitis
you can start herbal preparation which has no adverse effects
gojihavadi kashyam 2 tsf twice daily for sinus inflammation and raised eosinophills
and pathyadi ghan vati 2 tab twice daily for headache
