I'm 39 year old male. I have suffered over 2 years from a strange set of symptoms. Headache, ear ache, dizziness, balance problems, vertigo, tinnitus, malaise, fatigue, nausea, and gastritis. I have also persistent eczema in fingers. Blood test are normal except complement level low CH50 is low 23 (should be over 30), C4 is 15 (just within normal range), WBC slightly low 3700/microl, creatinine slightly high 1.2 and low IgM immunoglobulin. Occasionally occult blood and protein in urea. First diagnozed with Meniere's disease but the doctors were later sceptical about it due to atypical symptoms. Maybe some kind of systemic autoimmune disease. Tried Valacyclovir for 3 months and it really helped a lot. However, EB virus, VZ and HSV tests are all negative IgG and IgM. Anti-dsDNA negative also. Problems now with Valacyclovir because of kindney concerns. I do not take other drugs. What do you think may be causing these symptoms? What kind of tests would you suggest?
