Get a second opinion: I do not understand your health problem because we need a lot more information to make a correct diagnosis of such rare conditions as you have listed. I would advise you to seek a second opinion from a hematologist /oncologist in order to find out what exactly is wrong with you, before taking such powerful medicines as you have listed..
