Pathology

In brief: Physical exam first

Before ordering lab test, a medical history and physical examination ought be done to narrow the possibilities of potential diseases.
The choice of blood tests would then be dictated by the diagnoses that need to be excluded and to determine the severity of the process. See your doctor asap.
