    I don't know the reference ranges for eosinophil count, so I can't tell you how high that is. Eosinophils are associated with parasitic infection. Philipines+abdominal pain+nausea might equal a tapeworm or a roundworm, particularly if there's blood in your stools, or they appear black and tarry, since they found no ulcers with the barium swallow. But honestly abdominal pain can be caused by anything... stress, infection, GERD, blockage, worm, etc., and blood cell counts rise and fall. I'd say unless you're doubling over in pain or can't keep anything down, don't worry about it and keep taking the nexium. Try telling your doc it doesn't work, and that you travel to the philipines and might have picked up a worm or parasite of some sort.
