Hi I'm a 27 year old female working in childcare, I catch a lot of bugs so this is one of many occasions I've had weeks off work...
This time I've been unwell with diarrhoea, nausea, headaches/migraines, random fevers, swollen throat glands, light sensitivity and dizziness, extreme fatigue, a really sore stiff neck and sore throat. The doctor put me on antibiotics and said its a throat and UR infection. He also tested my blood and it came back with a high titre of 1280, but all follow up tests for autoimmune diseases were negative including negative rheumatoid factor. There was a slightly low white blood count, low vitamin D level and Epstein Barr in there from a while ago but no one is sure when I had it exactly (this isn't the first time I've been like this!)
As well as all these symptoms yesterday my whole left leg was numb, like a dead weight feeling. At about 9pm out of nowhere I had severe cramping from my left hip down to my shin. Went straight to the medical centre just to be safe and they said its nothing to worry about.
In my family there is rheumatoid arthritis, 2 people diagnosed with crohns and vasculitis among other things.
As you can tell I am getting frustrated because I've now been sick for 11 days and the Panadol and antibiotics don't seem to be helping! My neck is so sore!!
Do any of you have any ideas or suggestions? The dr suggested lupus but the dsDNA was negative...
Anyone in a similar situation?
