In brief: Maybe...

Lymphocytes can be elevated in autoimmune conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, viral infections, and lymphomas/lymphoproliferative disorders.
Additional testing is needed to find out what is causing these symptoms and the high lymphocytes. See the doctor who ordered the test and discuss what the next step is for you.

In brief: Need more work up

High white count and fever may suggest presence of an infection.
High lymphocyte count may suggest viral infection. Argument against it is that you had this for three years? This may also be due to a blood / hematological disorder especially if you have had high lymphocyte count for three years. You need more Medical work up
