Hey guys, really need your opinion or what you guys think since it's been 7 weeks since the onset of these symptoms & multiple tests have been done with no diagnosis thus far.
The First Symptoms
When symptoms first started it started off with testicular aches, pain in pubic area, flank area & lower abdomen, Pains would come & go like searing hot pain, extreme tenderness in those area, etc. Naturally I thought it was a urology issue & did multiple testicular exams, blood markers,etc and came back clean.
Now here is where the plot thickens.
While the groin issue was happening I start to experience other symptoms which seem unrelated and come & go.
Well those new symptoms are what I'm stuck with now & the unexplained groin symptoms have been absent the past 2 weeks (after being there for 5 weeks)
Instead the symptoms I have now are:
Both ribs, especially lower ribs feeling bruised for no reason. The tenderness of ribs can be felt in the front ribs, side of body and can be traced all the way to the back if pressed.
Unexplained non injury back pain started in upper left back & has now progressed to entire upper back and mid back. Feels like almost like an injury pain. Present pretty much all day but pain will vary in areas of the back or how mild it can be throughout the day
Sometimes the rib & back can have a weird achy feeling all at once together and come on out of nowhere. The ribs, side of ribs, back will ache all at once and not even lying down helps. The ache can leave you feeling sick and queasy until it's gone.
This also comes and goes. But the actual lung itself sometimes feels exhausted, sore, and achy. There are times I will wake up with what feels like the lung is on fire. That symptom will sometimes be replaced with an achy sore feeling. Especially for example if I bend my upper body for a few seconds and come back up right the lung will feel sore & weak. Again these symptoms can disappear for a few days before they come back again. I've noticed thou if symptoms are present it's usually the worst in the morning after waking up.
In the upper left abdomen area I experience a very weird pain like someone is holding a pencil from inside and poking against one of the organs under or next to left rib. Again not to be mistaken with the other rib pain. This symptom is an actual upper left abdominal pain sensation. Usually I felt that mild pain after eating when this started. But today felt it for no reason when I woke up and was the worst I've felt that pain as it was way more noticeable & not just mild
A slight dry cough had started 5 weeks back, it has now progressively gotten worse. And although long amount of hours can pass by without me coughing. When the dry cough does happen, it's more deeper, developed and stronger,
I've had unexplained loss of appetite & nausea that came & went. Just 3 weeks ago I experienced 4 days of loss of appetite & mild nausea that'd come & go. Disappeared for 3 days then came back hard for 2 days with heavy nausea,early satiety & dizziness that lasted 2 days. Then disappeared for 1 week then came back for 2 days as just mild loss of appetite and currently gone again
Tests done so far
- Ultrasound of testicle = Right Only Varicocele found
- Kidney ultrasound: Clean
- Urine test: Clean of any infections,etc
- MRI of abdomen & pelvis= Came with slightly enlarged inguinal lymph nodes
- CAT Scan of abdomen/pelvis found nothing before the mri
- Blood tests: Lipid panel, A1C, STDs, inflammation makers, h pylori bacteria, Complete blood count, white blood cell differential, lipase, calcium level, D-Dimmer all came back normal except for slightly elevated triglycerides & cholesterol from lipid panel
- Chest Xray= normal
So I'm currently at loss of what these weir symptoms and how they all relate. I'm trying to push for an upper endoscopy & an upper mri from the doctors. But not sure what else to do besides that.
Do you guys have any idea what can cause this? I've went from completely healthy 22 years old to bizzare symptoms that have been 7 weeks so far.
