  • Camp out in the doctor's office until they call the lab and get the results. Obviously someone has lost them. And it's usually the docs office.

  • Could be any number of things like a virus, mono, arthritis or even the start of something autoimmune. If you have nausea or diarreah, you need to have him run liver function tests. If it doesn't go away in a week or so, then have him run tests for IGM-RF, IGA-RF, ANA, MONO and other tests for connective tissue disease. Hope you feel better soon! Kiera

  • make them test you for Mononucleosis. i had it years ago... i was miserably sick and my body ached so bad i could not get out of bed. Mono not only makes you very sick with symptoms similar to Strep Throat, but it also gives you what my Doc called "temporary arthritis". A lot of times, Mono will attack one or two joints more than the others... so you will feel the most pain there. Also, Mono stays active for 3 months after symptoms disappear, and oftentimes you will still feel the pain in your joints long after you don't seem to be sick anymore.They put me on antibiotics too... they didn't work... and the Docs didn't figure out what it was until after I was feeling much better.Ask your doctor about it... it can't hurt to rule out one more thing if that's not the answer. And I agree with the others in saying that you have to stay on top of your Doc to get those lab results back. Good Luck!
