I have had a lot of strange symptoms. The first was weight loss of close to 100 pounds, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and occasional fevers. Then I started spitting up blood and have been for over a year. I have seen every specialist you can think of from gi doctors to pulmonologists, oncologists, and even ents. They thougt at first that I had lung cancer due to a pet scan that showed meiastinal lymphadenopathy. They did a lymph node biopsy that showed non caseating granulomas, then they thought I had lymphoma or sarcoidosis. They never actually diagnosed me with anything and eventually I gave up and quit seeing doctors. I was starting to feel better for a while there, but I starting to feel sick again now. I'm still spitting up blood and having chest pain, as well as pain in my left testicle just about every day. They did an ultrasound of my testicles and found a micro calcification. Luckily it wasn't cancer. I don't what I should do now. I know that it's not anything to serious, but I can't figure out why I'm spitting blood just about every day. The doctors did extensive testing, they scanned me from head to toe and scoped every part of my body, colonoscopy, bronchoscopy, gi scope, and ent scope. I'm sorry for writing a book here but any help would be appriciated. And sorry if some of the spelling is incorrect.

  • You should definitely look into Wegener's Granulomatosis. All of your symptoms can be accounted for by the disorder. These include: severe weight loss, fatigue, muscle/joint pain, fevers, hemoptysis (spitting up blood), and granulomas. On rare occasions lymphadenopathy may be present. Good luck!
