Taking all your symptoms into consideration,it is possibly a neurological problem.Please have a second opinion and try to rule out MS.Consult a dermatologist for your skin problems,it could be a separate issue not involving your neuro problems.
The high levels of protien are indicative of Multiple Sclerosis(MS).Consult a Neurologist without further delay.
Tumors are another reason,do consult a oncologist.
