Hi. This is my first post so please bear with me.
On the 15th February I was diagnosed with a chest infection. I was put on 7 days of Amoxicillin. I returned a week later and GP said everything was know fine and I was sent on my way.
Several hours later I ended having a paramedic out as I was suffering from whole body tremors. They said my temperature was high and sent me to hospital the following morning. Whilst a hospital they checked for pneumonia and a blood clot, (all were clear) the only abnormal thing found was a CRP of 20, so they said “you look like you have an infection but we don’t know where” They gave me another weeks worth of Amoxiclav.
Two weeks after that I returned to my GP as I know couldn’t hold my bladder, was still having one sided tremors, was still recording the odd temperature of 38.9c and started having lower abdominal pain. They then said they still didn’t know what was going on but, have another weeks worth of Amoxiclav.
The GP did some blood tests; ESR - 45bCRP - 18 (only 2 abnormal) however he said they are perfectly normal for someone who is my age (23yrs).
I have had a normal ultrasound, normal chest xray, bloods mostly normal, 4 normal urine samples.
After being signed off for 5 weeks, I am fed up! I am not sure what to do next? I still have abdominal pain in all 4 quadrants and still feel rough.
