Hi, welcome to the forum, the commonest possibilities are Lymphoma (Hodgkin’s disease/myeloproliferative disorder seems to be likely), Infections like Brucellosis, Pheochromocytoma, Carcinoid syndrome and Hyperthyroidism.
I would suggest you to go for following tests. Total blood count, Hb % and differential count (if abnormal then go for bone marrow biopsy) can be done to rule out anemia and lymphoma (leukemia). Others are mantoux test for tuberculosis, repeat HIV ELIZA for HIV, Brucella serological test and thyroid profile. I suggest you to consult physician for thorough investigations. Take care and regards.
