I've had symptoms for years of sore joints, sore muscles, spasms & tremors, insomnia, bowel problems/IBS, extreme exhaustion, chest pain & palpitations, low resistance to illness & infection etc. This all seemed to start after a holiday in thailand, with a lot of wandering in jungles & riding elephants. I was fine when I came home but about 10 days later developed 5 awful bites on my legs with fever, vomiting, pain and swollen glands. I was admitted to hospital (tested for malaria which was neg) & was on IV antibiotics for a week as the bites were badly infected. The doctors said that most likey something had burrowed into my skin on holiday & it had become infected. After treatment they healed up, although ever since i've not been right, that was 5 years ago and the past year has been particularly rough, all the symptoms seem to be getting worse.
I want to see my GP about if this could be a tick related illness, but since it's been 5 years now I'm not sure there is much they could do anyway? or would they just laugh at me for suggesting it could all be related? lol
