I have been dealing with theses symptoms that have only worsen over the last 3 months. I have seen multiple drs with no answer just tossing meds at me. It started 3 months ago I noticed my temple area was swollen. Its a hard lump, I figured it was a sinus infection and went to urgent care. Urgent care immediately sent me to a neurologist suspecting temporal arteritis. Unfortunately my neurologist was less than worried and blew it off, saying I do not meet the age of temporal arteritis ( I am 31). Over the next few months my symptoms have worsen and gained new ones. Currently I have a lump on the right side it is hard not real moveable, numbness/tingling in my face only on the right side, my body temperature is all over the place ( i am hot then cold or my bodys hot but I have the chills), my right arm hurts constantly, I am bruising all over for no apparent reason, my stomach has been bloated regardless of how much water I drink. I have seen a rheumy, eye surgeon, multiple neuerologist, had 6 mri's with and without contrast, countless CT scans, MRA, emg and have had no answer. I recently went to the ER and had blood work done and my red blood count and mpv was low and my neutrophils were high. I currently am stuck with a referral to another neurologist and an infectious disease dr (one neuro thought it is shingles but antivirals did not touch it). The lump is pain and creates head pain, not a headache but actual pain like I was hit almost.
