It's been a week and I have too many symptoms to pinpoint anything. It started with flu like symptoms a week ago, but then my lymph nodes were very swollen. I got a rash all over my body for 24 hours. Then it went away, but my skin has felt extremely painfully itchy. My hands and knees are swollen. My muscles hurt in my arms and legs. When I am relaxed i can't lift my arms or pick up anything because of the pain. I feel very heavy and can't sleep. The only thing that helped was Singulair and pain medicine. But this is only temporary and my joints and muscles hurt when I move them. After the meds wear off it all comes back. I saw a Dr. That was not interested and set me off with " it must be a virus. If I continue to feel this way in week come back". Any ideas?

  • Hi I have the same symptoms right now. My dr prescripted vicodine for me but it doesn't help me at all. I know you posted three years ago, but I wonder how you are doing now. Thanks
