Anyways , these symptoms can point towards something serious , the main possibilities being ;


A cancer or malignancy especially something called Myeloma if IgM levels are always high

Thirdly it could be a Hyperactive thyroid / parathyroid

It needs work up , so i would recommend you to see your doctor ASAP for evaluation with appropriate tests.

Also i have pain in my neck at saliva or limph nodes area kust under my ears there is a place

Ok , your age doesnt go with Myeloma , however still i would like you to have the tests i mentioned above .

At yourage , other possibilities include Diabetes insipidus , but that also needs specialized tests under an Endocrinologist .

Night sweats are usually seen with malignancies like Lymphoma at this age so it needs physical examination and possibly a CT whole body for sny clues
