Let me first start off by saying that I am 18 years old with a pretty clean medical history aside from an exposure to TB for which I was treated with medicine for a year, high cholesterol, high triglycerides.. Heres my story:
In June 2008 I started having tightness and warmness in my legs. I went to my doctor and instead of trying to find out why this was occuring she told me that my legs were not going to fall off. With that being said I went off on my merry way hoping the symptoms would go away. On June 10th things took a turn for the worse. I began developing terrible head pain, sharp pains in the back of my head and pressure by the veins in my temple. These head pains got worse as the days went on, I would get terrible throbbing head pain and no medication would work. I went back to my PCP and she sent me referrals to a cardiologist, rheumatologist, and a neurologist. On June 12th I began having the worst type of head pain ever and went to the ER. I saw a neurologist and he suggested that they do an MRI of my brain. The results came back normal and they sent me home with pain killeIrs. On June 20th another symptom came about I saw these red dots on my body that would suddenly get itchy and red around them. I also developed sharp pains in my chest and by my lungs. When I went to the neurology appointment he suggested I have a spinal tap done to rule out meningits. The spinal tap came clear but I kept having the symptoms. My symptoms got worse and my mucus was bright yellow, green and bloody. I started getting these spasms in the veins of my legs, and in my feet. I then started getting this sensation as if someone was dropping cold water on my skin, and when I would walk the sensation would get worse. I then started getting pains in my eyes and my vision would alter. I have been getting frequent nosebleeds now and I get sharp pains in the back by my lungs, along with the other symptoms mentioned above. It feels like I am bleeding internally when I feel that water sensation it feels like a liquid flowing. I have had an MRA recently without the contrast recenlty and it came back OK. I am seeing m a new primary doctor tomorrow in order to find out what is going on. Can anyone think what it is or what can be done to find out what it is.n

  • The symptoms I am most concerned with are the blood sensation, the warmness in the legs and in the eyes, and the head pain
