all of this started about a month or so ago and i just kept adding symptoms, i went to see my doctor and she did some blood tests but everything she tested for came back negative. she then decided to put me on antibiotics for 2 weeks and made a follow up appointment. hopefully the antibiotics will help me, but to be honest i am not optimistic.

My Symptoms:
-neck pain/stiffness
-back pain/stiffness (not just in the lower back, all)
-chronic fatigue
-moments of confusion
-fogginess
-abdominal pain
-severe headaches that i can sometimes feel my heartbeat pounding in my head (not sensitive to light or sound)
-difficulty falling asleep
-blurred vision
-general feeling of weakness all over my body
-lower temperature than normal for me, but i feel like i'm burning up
-constant sore throat
-excessive thirst
-excessive hunger
-whooshing sound in ears, especially the right ear (not related to ear infection)
-bruising more easily/some unexplained bruising
-slight numbness in fingers and feet

i don't believe i've left anything out.
if any of you have any clue what it could possibly be please please let me know!!

p.s. the doctor eliminated mono and lyme disease, she didn't tell me what else she tested for.

  • after reading up on it, i realized that the antibiotics my doc did give me were for lyme disease. i think she's hoping that the tests were a false negative and that they will help me. i've only been on them for a few days, nothing has changed yet, but we'll see when the two weeks are over i guess.thank you so much for your response!
