Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. All this means is that you have some numbers in your complete blood count that are a little out of normal. CBC with diff is not a diagnostic tool. You red blood cell count is actually a little on the low side which isn't generally found in hemochromatosis. Neutrophils, lymphocytes, monocytes, and eosinophils are four of the five types of dub-categories of white blood cells. The fifth is basophils. All five together comprise 100% of white blood cells. When one of them is high, others must be lower in order to always add up to 100%.


What they do in surgery to repair your shoulder depends on what is torn. Your orthopedic surgeon should be able to tell you exactly what is wrong and what s/he will do to repair it. Have you had a sleep study to determine why you aren't sleeping well? Your doctor would have to order it. There are lots of reasons for vertigo. An ENT is one specialist to determine if there is problem with the inner ear. An ophthalmologist is the specialist to see about your eyes. I know you told me you just got new glasses, but they are usually dispensed by opticians or optometrist, while you need to see a medical doctor, an ophthalmologist.
