So me and my buddy both got sick within 2 days of each other were both 23 yearold males. The only thing we did together were Plumbing jobs and ate together . The initial sickness lasted about a month and a half. But has continued well after that.
(Ive had regular blood work, stool tests and a colonoscopy)

Both our symptoms were

*Diareha(had an oatmeal look)
*Kidney, liver area and spleen pains
*A warm flush feeling
*Pain in major lymph nodes but no swelling
*EXTREME fatuige
*Dry mouth
*General stomach/abdominal pains
*Night sweats
*Muscle cramps
*Loss of appeitte(like I couldnt swallow a thing)

*Have only had a few normal(hard) bowel movements in over 2 years.

*what could make all those organs hurt at once

Ever since that first month and a half it took months for a day were we felt halfway normal but we continued have episodes of the sickness. We could maybe go a week or up to 2 months feeling pretty much ok(but always tired). Untill atleast 2 of those symptoms would kick back in(except for dry mouth). Now it seems for the past 9 months our memory has been getting worse and my hands have been freezing... Im just looking for any words that can point me in a direction before my baby girl is born so I can be myself again its been a long time.

  • Get checked for infectious causes. If you were plumbing in an area where mice, rats, or other wild animals may have been nesting, it's possible that you may have gotten something by being exposed to their bedding, droppings, etc. Make sure you mention such exposure to your doctor so s/he will know what to think about.

  • I already did that and the doctors seem to be picking and choosing what they hear. But infectious was my first thought too since we both got sick together is Mold a thought you think?
