Need advice with diagnosing

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am struggling to get a diagnosis. I have shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, General weakness, some swelling on neck on the left side, low grade fever off and on, some throat swelling. Pain in the neck area, numbness and tingling in the hands, feet and head, some pain in the kidney aea the other day,  occasional heart pulputations, dizziness.  I live in the US and my primary care doctor ran some tests, which included ESR and thyroid, and those came out fine. I suspect Vasculitis, but my PCP does not seem interested in testing for it, and I am not even sure which tests to request. My question is, how is Vascullitis diagnosed? Any advice on how to find a doctor familiar with this decease, which tests to request? Does anyone have similar symptoms?

    It sounds like you need to eat more carbs, take your vitamins, and pay attention to intake of iron and vitamin C.
