Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. These symptoms with multi organ involvement needs further workup to reach the diagnosis, its not enough to comment on the possibilities with few lab reports, complete clinical correlation is advised.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
