About a year ago I started having terrible headaches and noticed a lump growing on my upper forehead. Primary sent me to Neurologist who confirmed walnut sized hemangioma of the skull. Had craniectomy to remove growth. Headaches stopped for a while then came back with a vengence. Started having drenching night sweats once or twice a week along with fatigue. In January primary sent me to gastro who suspected lymphoma. My little sister is just now in remission after stem cell transplant. Gastro removed one node from my neck , one lipoma from my breast and another lipoma from my lower back. These all came back fine. All my blood tests came back within normal limits except for RA factor wich tested in the 600 range three different times. Went to infectious disease doc who could not come up with anything. Went to rheumatoligist who could not find anything. This all concluded in April with no resolution or DX. Primary said I was probably imagining it. Went to Psychiatrist who said I was not imagining it that my symptoms are real. I decided to just tough it out. Since May I have gone from 195 lbs to 167 lbs. Night sweats are not as frequent, but I still have them. In July my thigh has gone numb from the knee up. I'm still fatigued and have no appetite. I just don't feel well at all. I'm going to schedule a visit with a new primary to start over with a clean slate. I was just wondering if there was anyone else out there who has gone through something similar?
