Hi,

After a long bowt of having an upset stomach and diarhea, approx 2 months, i went to the doctors. They thought that it looked like IBS but ran tests, i believe with IBS they would expect everything to come back normal.

However, the results showed that i had low iga and low igm levels....and everything else normal. It seems that they are a bit confused as to what could be casuing this, and obviously i am very worried myself.

They sent the information to a specialist who again didn't come aback with much, but said they was a small chance of Leukemia...but seeing as i was otherwise healthy and normal the doctor thought this highly unlikely, i also ask whether it could be something like HIV.

Major worries:

Is this an indication of Leukemia?
Could this be an indication of HIV infection?

Any advice/help would be really appreciated.

Thanks
