Here is a list of my symptoms I have been seeing doctors for almost a year now with very little results. Symptoms, Fatigue, nasal congestion/blockage left maxillary need surgery , deviated septum, persistent cough, headaches, neck shoulder pain, lower back pain, muscle pain burning sharp ache right leg, abdominal pain, bleeding from rectum, weakness, irritability, depressed mood, 99 to 101 fever all the time, joint pain, abdominal pain, constipation and chest pain intermittent, I think that covers the symptoms. This sinus surgery will be the third surgery I have had to have this year. First I had to have a lymph node removed and it was solid black when they removed it, swollen very painful, but they did no tests on it because they assumed it was black because of tattoo ink and iI have about 6 tattoos. I also had to have my gallbladder removed this year. I have been sick for almost a year with no answer any closer just more surgery. Been to multiple doctors, ENT, PCP, Hematology Oncologists, Neurologists (I have nerve damage in the right leg), and now I am seeing an infectious disease doctor. Can someone shed some light I am about at the end here. I am so tired of being sick all the time. Any help would be really appericiated.

If you were ever a smoker, I would recommend getting a chest Xray, because the chronic coughing is a symptom of lung cancer. maybe you have a tumor somewhere in your body, but again, can't say, I'm not qualified. The best advice I can give, is that if your Dr is not acknowledging your concerns (and you know your body), don't give up.. It took me several dr's to finally get diagnosed, and he found more than one problem.. and every dr prior missed them! It's expensive and a pain to keep trying to find the right Dr.. but, you will find one that takes the time to care and listen and properly diagnose.. patience is the hardest part when you feel like crap! and bloodtests, though they are important, don't always give the answer.. trust me! A good dr will perform many blood tests, not just the standard CBC (think that's what it's called). my father had the basic blood test and they said he was fine.. 6 mts later he died of lung cancer! not to say that is going to happen to you. but, the patient that doesn't give up, usually gets a proper diagnosis. Goodluck!

I haven't had a chest ultrasound done, I don't see ID doctor again until after my sinus surgery.I have came back neg for all hep viruses, neg for HIV, beg for TB, I think that's all they have tested for I'm not really sure I have had so many test ran this year.
