Question: Hi,
I've always gotten sick far more often than anyone else, and I'm prone to developing high fevers, bronchitis, sinus infections, etc. I am almost always sick, and it takes an unbelievably long time for me to recover. Within the last few years, it seems to be getting worse: lymph nodes are often swollen, recurring low-grade fevers, painful/stiff joints, ulcers in the mouth, terribly sore throat/loss of voice. A blood test showed that my immunoglobulin M is low, at 42 MG/DL. Should I follow up with an immunologist?
Thank you!

Brief Answer:
Yes, you should definitely consult immunologist.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Yes, you should definitely consult immunologist and discuss your symptoms and low IgM.
You might me having congenital immunodeficiency syndromes.
Another possibility is connective tissue diseases (CTD s).
So consult immuno and discuss all these.
