My husband has been sick for past 4 days now, began w/ strong shivers literally for 2 hrs straight non stop followed by severe headaches, fever and very aching joints, feels extremely weak. He can no longer sleep at night from such a condition! This has been going on for few days now. Went to see a doc today who simply took a blood test and told him he thinks that its a viral infection which causes all these symptoms. He now sobs from the joint pain on his carpals and the tarsals / dorsalis pedis area, feet and toe joints. He is not a smoker nor a drinker, a healthy 28yr old. I am myself a nursing student in the accelerated program and only wish I would know how to help him besides for the regular plenty of fluids and motrin for fever and pains. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Does he eat a lot of meat?This sounds like liver, pancreas, and kidney unbalance- but don't take my word for it- check with a Doctor of Oriental Medicine.Sounds like his uric acid might be elevated: Toe pain.How much water has he been drinking?Is his urine strong smelling?

  • Sounds like gouty joint pain throughout his body. Poor guy. If you do find out it is gout I have found this product "goutrol" to be the best and faster way to get rid of pain..He may have other things going on, too...it could be the flu...hard to say.

  • Has he been out of the country? or south Texas +Carribbean.(Dengue Fever) also known as bone-break fever because of the pain. Are you in Australia? (Ross River Virus). Where do you live? Has he been out in the woods in the last month? (tick-borne like Lyme disease). Does he have a rash or abdominal pains? Does he work around animals? Minnesota? Babesiosis, Lyme and human anaplasmosis. Sorry...gonorrhea? Type in "chills fever joint pain headache arthritis". Hope this helps.

  • If the headaches don't go get the doctor to send him for an MRI. Severe headaches over an extended period would suggest that should be investigated via a brain scan to make sure there is no problem originating from there.

  • Thanks everyone for your input on this matter. No he is not a meat lover, his urine is not foul smelling and for the past few days, he has complained of pain all around the joints of the body even his hips, possible gout, I highly doubt but will look into. He has not been away from country either. Fever is still continuous, but thank G-d at least he smiles now. Gonorrhea :confused: I am certain he doesn't have, thanks though:) . What else can it be? Maybe just a flu as I thought of since day 1 w/out the common flu symtoms, possible? Thank you all, enjoy the holidays.

  • Well, I am thinking he has an infection.I was wondering if you or him got vaccinated recently- flu shot?Please get Oil of Oregano Caplets and/or Essiac Tonic from the Organic store.He needs to take one these herbs because they are anti-viral, antibiotic properties w/o making him feel worse.There is something really toxic on him, it almost looks like he is not degrading the undigestible food - hence he gets all that joint pain.Toxin are running back into his blood stream.Besides those 2 herbs- he should try Dandelion tea from Yogi tea. Or prepare an Onion, Ginger, Cinnamon, Black pepper infusion at home. No sugar can be added to this.Put him in a warm tub filled with some baking soda for about 20 minutes. Rinse.Been there- I wish you both the best.Merry Christmas.Fruity.ps: Take him to the Oriental Doctor asap. Infections allocate in the pancreas, liver, and testicles.

  • Join lymenet. They'll help you find an LLMD and a decent lab. Don't believe what they are teaching you in nursing school. My Lyme had been negative over and over. I finally tested positive for Lyme and babesia, but I'm convinced I had ehrlichia, too. I would also seriously consider microwave sickness (electromagnetic hypersensitivities, electrical sensitivities, electrosensitivities). I have this along with Lyme, and I honestly think this is WHY I have Lyme. If you are using a cell phone or cordless phone, you may want to get rid of both. Please google 'The Bioinitiative Report' and 'The Freiburger Appeal'. 'Interview with Dr. Robert O. Becker' and 'Interview with Louis Slesin' are two other resources. Yahoo has a new group for the electrosensitive called 'EMF Refugee', if you are interested. By the way, viruses are very common with Lyme. I learned though that bacteria have a 'magnetic sense', and cell phones have pretty much messed up their magnetic sense, so they now stick around. As a nursing student, I'm praying you can get the word out, because though Swedish doctors take me very seriously, no American doctors are yet listening. Lyme Disease is epidemic, and most American doctors are even denying that.Every living organism has a magnetic field, a resonance that is unique to its DNA sequence.If the organism enters your body and you repell it, it becomes and infection- your electromagnetic field tries to push it out.If your body lets the organism glide, and then it assimilates and destroy it, then you are immune.So the secret is to 'synchronize' your electromagnetic field with the infections and then they are no longer infections- they are just inferior organisms.I had a chronic strep infection probably since birth. After 29 years with recurrent health problems- I have spent almost a year w/o suffering from a single infection. I am immune to all infections- including Hepatitis- for that I did not get treated, it looks like I grew up immune. I am also immune to TB, mycoplasma, lyme, bacteria, etc. I paid 70 bucks for each treatment- and I have never had a fever again.NAET can reverse the damage of Lyme- it will take time and work, but it is possible.

  • Mosquitos are also moving up to higher elevation so they are attacking people who strategically had populated areas that were bug free.The real Global Warming is the Chemtrails, every time they spray in Washington DC, within 12 hours it rains in Panama, Central America- no matter what.

  • I think the homeopathic remedy called eupatorium perf can help with this condition. Here is the symptom picture for this remedy. http://www.homeoint.org/books/boericmm/e/eup-per.htm Get this remedy in 30c potency. Give it every 4 or 5 hours. 3 doses per day. You need to stop it as soon as he gets better. You will get homeopathic remedies in health stores.

  • My daughter had many of the same symptoms you listed, very high fever, excruciating bone and joint pain, feeling so horrible for days she thought she would die. Doctors told us it was a viral infection, come back if she didn't get better. She continued to get much worse, finally after a horrific week and three different doctors appts she was dx with leukemia. certainly hope your husband doesn't have anything like that, however, I would get a complete blood work up done. Good luck . Julie

Good luck . Julie I am so sorry to hear of your daughter's diagnosis. How are the docs treating her? Have you heard about Aloe Vera as an herbal treatment for leukemia? Please google Herbal Aloe Force Aloe - it is of extremely good quality and has been used in cancer and HIV research. It is safe and has no known contraindications. Please see if you can find this or a similar product for your daughter I really think it would help! Best wishesDOM
