Twenty years ago I came down with severe flu-like symptons (fever 105+, a rash on my back, severe muslce aches, and general malaise). The symptons lasted about 1 week before begining to subside. I lost 20# in about 2 weeks. When recovery began I was left with tingling, numbing & burning in hands & feet. The hands recovered in the next 6-9 months. However, my left toes to this day tingle & burn but are particularly severe when I catch any type of flu. It is like the flu bug attacks my nervous system as not only is the tingling etc. exacerbated but all of my nerve endings seem to be "on edge". In 1986 various ideas of what I might have had varied from lyme disease, legionairres disease, hepatitis, & rocky mountain spotted fever. Is there a blood teat that can be done to isolate and identify what must remain in my blood? I am an active person and the left foot symptons really bother me at times.

  • Don't know what you got, but acupuncture might restore some of that nerve damage. Give it ten treatments.

  • The rash, per my spouse, was in my middle back area. It disappeared after 3 days.
