I have been suffering with persistent unrelenting back ache for six months now which started as a pins and needles type sensation beneath my right shoulder blade in a very localised area. It has since then radiated across my entire lower back and now to my sides in the last month.
My sides (left is worse than right) ache, not painfully but more of a nagging sensation that feels almost like a tear or strain. I have also been experiencing flu like symptoms that seem to be worsening over time. I feel fatigued, shaky and weak in my legs and permanently thirsty.
When I wake up in the morning's I feel almost like I am hung over and my body feels hot on the inside whilst I feel cold on the outside.
In regards to bowel movements, I am going to the toilet two or three times a day and my stools are very loose and smelly (apologies for too much detail) and my stomach feels hot.
I have also noticed a slightly tender lump beneath my rib cage on the left hand side that feels almost like a swollen lymph node, it doesn't appear to be growing but is obviously causing me some alarm.
Does anyone have any insight into this laundry list of symptoms as I cannot get in to see my doctor until the 30th and the symptoms don't appear to be getting any better.
