I had some joint pains and low fevers starting back in June 07. I would have 3 or 4 good days and then the rest of the week was bad?
I started going to the doctor in August to figure it out but so far no dice. Things have progressed since August to where I now have fevers around 103 daily (im taking 2 Tylenol and 4 Motrin 2 or 3 times a day) and along with these fevers I have basically a total body muscle ache.
The last blood test results had my white blood cells over 24000 and my ESR (showing inflammation) at 97 (suppose to be 0-10).
So right now daily I have these symptoms:
flu like chills (probably fever related)
muscle aches/weakness (inflammation)
I have been to my family doctor, ER doctors, and an infectious disease specialist and so far they keep coming up with nothing. Other than the raised levels in the blood. (white blood cells and ESR)
Nothing is being found so nothing is being done and I feel terrible everyday. Anyone with any ideas would be great.
good overall health prior to this
