For the past several days I've been experiencing horrible depression, fatigue so bad that I have to sit down at work in order to not faint, aches in my joints and muscles. Also my heart beat has been rapid almost constantly, and I've been running a fever of 99.9-99.7. It also feels like sometimes I can't inhale properly or all the way, like something cuts off every breath though it's not painful. This makes me doubt pneumonia. I'm a 19 year old female, I don't drink and only socially smoke. I've had insomnia, and haven't eaten much due to nausea. What could this possibly be? (My father is a doctor and suggested I go get bloodwork and a chest xray done.)

  • I think that's a good idea. It could be a virus or a bacterial infection or it could be something bigger. Best to rule out the easy stuff first before worrying about other possibilities. Could be Lyme Disease too.
