:confused: I am female 29, four children 8mo-9yrs, 5' 2" 175 lbs. Almost 2 months ago I started having chest pain upper right side, my pulse has been anywhere from 80-116 just walking around, my BP has been jumping around from 94/68 -144/96 again just walking around. Three weeks into this I started having symptoms of UTI with the chest pain. They found blood in the urine. They performed EKG (normal) and Blood Test CBC (normal). Doctors prescribed Bactrim (Sulfa). Eight days later a trip to ER chest pain worse. Dr's performed another EKG (normal), also performed Ct Scan (abnormal lymph node right side chest), also Blood Test CBC (abnormally low white blood cell count 1.7 along with some other abnormal counts), urine test (normal). Prescribed leviquin. Next day ER visit allergic reaction (rash difficulty breathing) told to be caused by sulfa. Follow up Dr's blood cell count (normal), urine (normal), scheduled Ct scan 10/16 to check lymph node. Chest pain is better, pulse and BP still fluctuating, now experiencing lower right abdominal discomfort starting at the belly button. FYI Background: Prior to my last pregnancy BP was consistantly 117/72. During pregnancy it dropped to around 94/68. My infant was born deaf in left ear. Does anyone see a common link for some if not all of this?
