I have been out of hospital for around 6 months now but they never found out what was wrong so was just wondering if anyone has any ideas
So 7 days after my 17th birthday I went into A&E with bad stomach pains and throwing up when I got there they did my heart rate and blood pressure and it was extremely high so they wanted to keep me in and after further tests it showed my infection markers were high and they believed it was comming from around the liver after being in for a week and getting worse and many more blood tests they still had no idea what was. I was on constant antibiotics and the only thing new they found out was my gall bladder was enlarged but with no signs of improving and no idea what was wrong they discharged me after a week but a few days later I came back as I was getting much worse so they did more blood tests and scans over the next week or 2 and my blood platlets started to get low and my kidney and liver function was going down and I was collapsing so they decided to transfer me to a hospital in a different city and I was put into ICU and while I was in ICU nothing was getting better and my kidneys and liver had basically stopped working and they had done almost every scan and blood test possible along with getting loads of different doctors involved but they where still baffled. Cutting the long story short they put me on steroid tablets and gave me a blood transfusion and everything started to get better and I was let out a few weeks later and they diagnosed me with glandular fever but even my outpatient doctor said he's almost 100% sure it wasn't that and they will probably never know.
So I just wanted to know do you belive it was wrong of them to discharge me the first time with no idea what was wrong
And also does anyone have any idea what it could have been
