Brief Answer:
No evidence of multiple myeloma.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.

You have gone through immunofixation. your result suggest no evidence of mono clonal spike. So you don't have monoclonal gammopathy like multiple myeloma.
So nothing to worry.

You have polyclonal gamma globulinemia.
It can due to many infection, inflammation, connective tissue disease or malignancy.

So you have to search for the cause.

Your sodium and alkaline phosphatase level are almost normal.

Please tell me about your symptoms and send me your all reports so I can help you further.

Hope I have answered your question. If you have any doubts then feel free to ask me. I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you very good health.
