I am normally a very healthy person, however I have had the following symptoms for the past week, and have had flu-like symptoms for about 2 weeks prior to this:
-Bleeding gums, small red cuts appearing on gums when brushing teeth (More than confident this is not gingivitis, as I have excellent dental hygiene), My gums are very sore
-Chills, and sweating through multiple layers of clothing
-Swollen lymph nodes in neck
-Ear infection, and throat infection
-Seizing of muscle in stomach
-Loss of appetite, tried to eat today for the first time in days and could not hold it down
-Joint pain (mostly hip/knee)

If anybody can help me out in anyway that would be greatly appreciated..I went to a doctor but all he could tell me for sure was that I have an ear infection. Please help!

I dont smoke/take any medications, dont eat much junk food or sugar, and a few years ago I was told I had low iron which was fixed by just adjusting my diet. (If this helps at all). THANKS!!

  • Were you tested for Lyme & its co-infections?? Its not usually tested for in normal blood work. The western blot test is the best one for more accurate results.
