Hi sassy, it sounds pretty horrific what you are going through and I sure hope you don't get bad news in your medical visits with the oncologist. You may not realize that you posted this on the Multiple Sclerosis forum, which is a disease of the central nervous system. None of your symptoms really sound like MS to me, but I am no medical expert. You are more than welcome to hang out here, though. This is a very friendly and helpful group.
here's to getting answers - I wish you well.
I'm not sure what the test is for and from this wording, could it be possible that this is just the idenfication for your lab results? The number would get larger, the more tests they run on people. just guessing ..........
Hi I am bit confused by the post,
Have you ever been diagnosed with MS?
Or are you looking for answers to your symptoms?
You mention bleeding disorder, neuropathy, headaches, dizzyness.....
This is an MS forum, but I post on here even though I do not have MS. I had symptoms similar to MS, but was eventually diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.
You need to have a test- Serum protein Electropherisis (SEP), it will tell you if you an "M-spike" (which is almost always caused by MM). If you have a spike, they then use the immunofixation test to figure out what kind of spike. (most common is IGG that is what I have- currently in remission) Myeloma causes other symptoms like frequent infections (in my case sinus and ears), anemia, night sweats etc
Hope you get some answers
Yes i agree with Lulu, the numbers you posted don't really seem like the numbers I have had when they have done an immunofixation test.
It usually says
and then positive or negative and may then say "lamda", or "kappa" positeve or negative
