I was worried i didnt know wat could it have been (im not sexually active). no having insurance i when to the ER and they test me fr step throat whick was tested negative for any they sent me home..

Let i got and ear infection and and the cold sore came back. so i went back to the hospital to care my ear infection.. I noticed that my hand started to feel numb.. i didnt think much of it cuz i just shook my hand it it went away .. then i noticed that the back of my hand was flaking.. since i dnt got insurance i knew i can keep going to the ER thts would be costly.. so I didnt do much..after away my stomach started to getting a lot of bumps on it and my chest started hurting.. i went to the ER to see wats was up all they did was a blood count test nd sent me home.. thn my feet started to het munb and it feel like really sharp pants at times.. I looked at mt feet and it look like the back of my hand..

Since you have internet, this can easily be searched and you can decide if it matches up.

  • Nah this is no crisis (I can tell) I wished it was compared to war going on now.. It feel like a vital viruse taking over my weak busy.. :( .A crisis usually effects extremities (hands, feet) and can explain many issues including black spots, pain, numbness. A cold sore is from a virus, but that is the herpes virus (type 1) , which normally would not take over your body like you describe. You need more than a cbc. Maybe ask ER dr. next time what they think it is- not just find negative on one test. You are entitled to that. What I would recommend is taking about 3 cloves of garlic (raw) a day- that is antiviral, as well as antibiotic. It also helps prevent clotting, which may help you. Another cheap remedy is apple cider vinegar, which should be taken with an equal amount of honey for taste. About 1 tsp 3 times a day is good. You can look that up, too. Many claim it works for many problems- it can't hurt.Good luck- it sounds really painful.

I would like to think yu for replying firstly. I read what you said and I'm going to give that try. To addon my feet and hands are cracking and hurting alot it started really hurting yesterday. I really can't go to th ER because they just. Take blood work and send me home, I guess because I not insured. I noticed my lip start peeling and breaking off.
