I have been sick for over a year with the following symptoms-
Extreme Fatigue
Joint Pain- mostly in shoulders, wrists, and hands
Night sweats- seriously every night drenching through p.js and sheets
daily congestion for over a year
flu like symptoms-
low grade fever 99-100
short term memory- I know its there but have problems trying to come up with things
I went to the Drs. and all my tests came back fine except I tested positive for ASO I have no strep symptoms- my throat is not sore not even red
ANA was negitive
CBC was fine- They can't figure out what is wrong I saw a GP- can anyone help?
