Mgus or not

Hi everyone,

I had a blood test over a week ago because I hadn't been feeling rested, so my doctor sent me to a neurologist for a sleep study.  He sent me for some blood tests and a few days later I received a call from my GP saying that my TSH was high and just casually mentioned my protein levels were high and he was watching them and that I should have another blood test at in a few weeks.   When I hung up I looked up what could cause the protein increase and called him back and he said nothing else other than the worst case is that it could be MGUS and that I should'nt worry !!!! 

I've been dealing with some gastro issues loose stools and diarrhea over the last 6 months and had a colonoscopy in June and it's come back okay but still no real relief from the loose tools a diarhea and this has only up set my stomach more, except to say I started going gluten free as of Monday and am noticing a bit of a change.

I'm sick with worry, I know that doesn't help but any insight you could share would be so helpful.  I've attached the results for my blood test.  Thanks kindly.

  An ill-defined band in the mid-gamma globulin
region is detected.
Beta-gamma bridging is observed. This may be due
to a diffuse increase in IgA.
Further investigation with quantitation of serum
immunoglobulins is suggested.
Further investigation by immunofixation
electrophoresis is suggested.

Sometimes high TSH can indicate a mere hypothyroidism, not MGUS...
