Sometime back in june I had a severe sinus infection. High fevers that would almost never break that lasted for a long time. After about a month of antibiotics I began to recover but still felt quite sick. They gave me levaquin just to be sure. While on levaquin I began to experience the fevers twice as bad as before, my skin felt like it was burning, I began having intense facial pain near my ear and zygomatic bone with intense burning.

After I finished those antibiotics they did not want to give me anymore. Ive been tested into the ground. cts, x rays, blood cultures and blood work, dentists, oral surgeons.

Low white counts with high monocytes and neutrophils indicative of infections.swollen lymph nodes. High constant fevers. I got so sick at one point I couldnt stop sweating or eat solid foods. I finally got antibiotics and have been on them for about a month or so. I have improved but am still sick.Basically where I was 4 months ago.

Im not sure what to do, the infection seems to be in the head mouth or neck area and at some point it was in my blood im sure. There is no way I was as sick as I was without it have gone into my blood. The pain has spread from my neck down into my right shoulder and chest and my lung is apparently sounding crackly. Pain just all the time. If i can tell them something anything, they might look again, or at least treat it. I dont know what to tell them though.
