elevated monocytes and eosinophils, intestinal worms, abdominal/pelvic pain
Hi, I'm a 45-year-old, 155-lb, 6-ft Caucasian male, over the years I have had muscle burning/twitching, 4 weeks ago I eliminated a 4-in intestinal roundworm and took Albenza 400mg, 1 dose. Two weeks later I had bloodwork done, please see below (consistent with what I got in previous years, to which no doctor has reacted). My chief complaint is that my abdomen/pelvis feels inflamed, as do other muscles (e.g., the buttocks twitch and feel uncomfortable when I sit down). I also have been having some actual pain in the abdomen, CT scans and MRIs revealed nothing. All my ova & parasites tests over the years negative, no way to verify actual worm elimination.
I am wondering if my condition could be a reaction to the toxins released (possibly over the years) by the intestinal worms, or if there is something wrong hematologically (I do feel that I am missing some essential nutrient that I cannot replace no matter what and how many supplements I take). I am particularly concerned with what to me appear as elevated monocytes (11.5%) and eosinophils (4.4%). Any suggestion/information would be appreciated, thank you for your time, sorry about the lengthy message, bloodwork results follow.
