I'm hoping that somebody is able to help me.
6 weeks ago I had a throat infection with slight fever, I got better rather quickly. After that however I got sick again, occasional headaches, slight fever that comes and goes, general fatigue, and a bad 'rattling' cough when I first lay down in bed (first 10 minutes or so).
At first I thought a chest infection, so I went to my GP's office last week (after 4 weeks of this, I figured I had better seek expert advice) and he ran some tests and prescribed me some antiobiotics.
The antibiotics *seemed* to work, almost within hours, I swore I could feel my body almost tingling with energy I hadn't felt in weeks (placebo effect? I was sure it wasn't...). I was so convinced that the antiobiotics had done the trick that a couple days later I tried to resume my regualr resistance training schedule.
Apparently not. Every time I try to do *anything* that requries a little physical effort, it just drains the energy out of me - like I have never experienced before. I just feel like I'm sick all the time, just writing this post now I feel I like laying down for a nap, and it's 2pm here.
The tests that my GP ran included blood tests, STD tests, ECG. He also has referred me to an immunologist.
I really want to get this diagnosed and treated, I'm a very active person and in fact studying Fitness Speciality, so I just can't afford to be incapacitated for an extensive period of time.
To summarise: overall fatigue with the occasional rattling cough (not often, and not always 'rattling'), no discoloured phlegm or such.
Anybody have any idea what this could be?
