3 months (first week of July) ago a furnucle appeared on my abdomen, adjacent to my navel and causing the entire area to become swollen, red, and painful. I also experienced nausea, fatigue, headache, back pain, increased blood pressure, and a general ill feeling. The doctor said it was a brown recluse bite and treated me with an antibiotic (I don't remember which one). The symptoms all disappeared after about 5 days. Then all the symptoms returned 4-5 weeks later, this time with 2 furnucles, again they were located in the same area (lower right quadrant of abdomen) and again, 4-5 weeks later the same symptoms arose (the third time there was one furnucle that appeared on my pubic area) I was treated one of those times with bactrim and the other time with cipro. Now, 4-5 weeks later, I have the same symptoms, with the furnucle on my abdomen again. I have had a feeling of dis-ease in my body since the first occurence, I just never feel 100%, and even feel like I am depressed at times. Doctor testes for staph on second visit. I was told the test was negative.

Any help would be appreciated.
