Recurrent fever/body aches have me worried (blood tests)

Back at the end of January I came down with a chest infection with fever and feeling terrible. Was given antibiotics for 5 days and started to feel better. 3 days later it came back worse, fever, shakes etc and was given stronger antibiotics (Co Amoxiclav). Within a few days my fever came down and I felt better, cough cleared up. X-ray was clear.

A little over a week ago I had to go to A&E with a high HR, fever and shakes. I had blood tests which are below and given more antibiotics by Dr for bacterial tonsillitis. Within a few days, fever went and I felt better.

On Wednesday night, once again, fever, shakes and muscle aches but the problem I have now is Dr won’t let me into the surgery as I have a fever. He’s told me to stay at home. Today (Sunday) I’m feeling much more myself with abit of a cough.

I’m really concerned there must be a serious underlying issue here and it’s going to be looked over due to everything that’s going on at the moment.

My blood tests as of just over a week ago:

WBC - 12.7 109L (Abnormal)

RBC - 5.04 1013L

Neutrophil 9.5 109L (abnormal)

Lymphocyte 1.7 109L

Monocyte 1.3 10*9L (abnormal)

CRP 20.5 mg/l (abnormal)

My serum total protein has been high since 2004, around 84-88 but my Dr has never been concerned as it’s been so long. My Igg has been 20 for some years too.

Any advice would be appreciated. I tried to google but that put me into more of a panic with different blood cancers.
