Hi there, I have turned to this forum because I’m pretty low and anxious right now, I am fit and healthy 31 year old mum of 2, I’m always on the go and always have been.
About a month ago I became quite unwell, high temp, flu symptoms (without the congestion) I was so tired and every muscle and joint hurt, docs tested for glandular fever and then CMV - negative, all my bloods are normal, they assured me it was just a bad viral infection, I have had periods where I have passed out from my muscle aches and weakness, after around 3 weeks I felt so much better! Then I went ahead a had a normal weekend, I went out, had a drink stayed up late 3 nights in a row, now every single lymph node in my body is swollen again and I feel awful (had this confirmed yesterday by yet another doctor, she assured me it was probably post viral fatigue and I just had to wait it out and rest ect. She is sending for more blood tests just to rule out any raise in my white cell count, the pain I am experiencing today is awful, I feel like I’ve been hit by a bus - (I’m a staff nurse on a busy Neonatal unit - I struggled through a 13 hour shift Monday and then a night shift last night) my boss has suggested I reduce my hours until I’m better, but I honestly just don’t understand why I’m so wiped out after feeling back to normal last weekend, has anyone else experienced swollen lymph nodes with post viral fatigue?
Any answers would be very greatfully received!
