My 20 year old son travelled to Morocco 7 weeks ago and while there contracted diarrhea after drinking water and shortly thereafter started experiencing fatigue and pain in shoulder, knee, ankle and wrist joints. These symptoms continue today. He suffers from no other symptoms: no fever, no headache, no shin rashes, no abdominal pain, no weight loss (has actually gained a little)... nothing else. He has had a blood test and stool samples taken. I understand they looked for the presence of virus and bacteria. The only thing that came up abnormal was a low iron count for which he has been taking iron supplements which have greatly reduced his fatigue. His primary care doctor has referred him to a rheumatologist and infectious disease specialist. My question: Are there any disease that are a possible fit for these symptoms and if so which one(s)? Also, is there any other course of action you would recommend. BTW: He is currently studying in Paris.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
