Hey, active, healthy guy in his 40's. A little over a week ago I came down with the following symptoms, high grade fever, severe upper joint pain, neck pain along with headaches, persistant cough, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, severe night sweats. Have just finished 7 days of receiving IV of antibotics, all blood and cultures have come back negative, yet the fevers and sweats still spike. Doctors are still looking. Anyone out there who has suffered with related symptoms? Apprecitate any advice!

  • The only advise I could give you after hearing you were on 7 days of antibiotics is that you need to balance your bowel flora with probiotics. I am sorry you are so ill with no diagnosis :( I wish there was more I could do to help.I hope you feel better soon though!Stacy

Anyone out there who has suffered with related symptoms? Apprecitate any advice! are you shaky also? Spread your fingers in front of you and see if they tremble. Could you tell what kind of neck pain, is it in the front around the adams apple?Do you only have nightsweats, or do you have heat intolerance and sweat during the day also? How are those heart palpitations, how many beats per minute? I do have an idea, but need answers to the above questions first to help. Greets, Hopibon (from europe)
