Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Since most of the symptoms involve the left side of your body you could having some neurological problem involving one half of your body. There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the upper cervical spine region. This can happen due to overuse of computers, work involving straining of neck, herniated disc, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc. A MRI of the cervical spine and nerve conduction studies may be required. Please consult a neurologist.
Other possibilities are fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, severe anemia, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritic changes of the vertebrae, calcium deficiency, low Vit D, electrolyte disturbance, peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes or hypothyroidism or due to bad posture. Lyme and lupus are the other possibilities. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Follow these techniques to lower the headache and improve the blood work results.This works gradually, so allow weeks to feel the benefit. Your body's software is stimulated, when you do pranayam.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.

The pranayam I have suggested will help with the smells.
Deficiency of IgA is immune deficiency disorder, where person has low levels of a blood protein called immunoglobulin A.(For info for others).
Drink warm water and avoid cold drinks. Take a teaspoon of turmeric powder with hot water, daily.It is a natural antibiotic. As the other problems get sorted with the pranayam, this IGA will get fixed over the longer term.
