Re: Mystery - undiagnosed mix of symptoms

The excess protein in your blood- do you know what kind it is? There's albumin. globulin, gamma globulins, etc. There are also immunoglobulins that are immune proteins. I would search through your lab records and see if a protein electrophoresis has been done and an immunoglobulin electrophoresis. You may have plasma cells producing way too much of a given protein, called a monoclonal gammopathy, and that needs to be evaluated by a hematologist ASAP. I would ask your Drs to refer you to a hematologist and get your appointment expedited by them. The thick blood poses a risk of TIA, heart attack and stroke, so I would do this immediately. The chest pain may be angina related to the thick blood. I hope this helps you.
