Hello. I started off with a cough, probably just a cold or something. The cough lasted for 4 weeks, and thought nothing of it. Then all of the sudden my vision got very weird, almost like everything was flashing white. Then my lips started to swell and i got hives all over my body. After taking medicine, it eventually went away. Throughout the next week my vision randomly got slightly flashy for about thirty minutes, normally when i was laying down. So i went to the doctor.
The doctor thought that i was just alergic to something, which i am pretty sure i wasnt beings that i had come in contact with absolutly nothing new that day. So symptoms went away except for cough for about a week, and now the hives are back at least once a day. And on top of that, one of my left ribs has been hurting alot. The cough finally is subsiding and the rib pain finally going away after about a week, but im still getting these 'hives'.
These are different hives than i am used to though. It always starts out as slight itching on my ankle or knees. Then i will get huge red lumps on the inside of my wrists. Then usually a finger (typically thumb or pointer finger) will swell at the joints to the point that i cant bend it. I always have these bumps on my major joints, so knees, ankles, under wrists, knuckles and fingers, and elbows. The vision problem has stopped, but i know that this isnt an alergic reaction. When i look online i have found nothing until i found something called Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorder.
My little brother has a different blood disease (different father than me), and i have had most of the symptoms for Chronic Myeloproliferative Disorder. Yesterday i believe i had a urinary infection, as i kept peeing once every 10 minutes or so. I have not eaten since 8:00 pm yesterday, and it is now 3:30 pm the next day and i am not hungry at all, which is very strange because i normally eat at least 4 full meals a day being a hungry skinny college kid.
Any opinion is greatly appreciated, because my doctors refuse to believe its anything other than alergies. I know my body well enough to know that its more than that. Any advice would be great. Thank you.
