Well this all started a little over 2 months ago when I started to notice pain on the bottoms of my feet while I was driving. I ignored it at first but then it started spreading to my legs and arms and now it is everywhere including my sides, ribcage, back and neck. I had a few unexplained bruises on my legs. I also started feeling really weak and fatigued all of the time. I just turned 19 about a month into this so I am a freshman in college. Before all of this I was a high energy person and I exercised all the time. I was even planning on getting back into tumbling so I could try out for cheerleading in the spring because I've missed it so much! Needless to say, that has all gone down the tubes. With all of this I could barely even get through my classes every day!
I went to the doctor, but she didn't seem very concerned. She didn't even look at the bruises or anything. She did do a cbc and that came out normal (this was about a month and a half ago). She said if I still felt bad in 2 weeks to come back. In the meantime it was thanksgiving, and my cousin suggested that maybe I had mono. Well after a few more days of pain and fatigue I decided to go to the urgent care place to get tested for mono. The monospot test came back negative, but the doctor told me that he was 99% sure that is what it was so he gave me some steroids. These helped me a little bit for few weeks, though I was still weak and very low energy. I decided it must be mono and I would be better soon enough.
Then a couple of days after Christmas everything came back full force, so on new years eve I went back to urgent care since it is quicker to get into than the regular doctors. This time there was a different doctor there who basically told me I was an idiot for thinking I have mono since the test came back negative and because of something in my cbc. So last week I went back to the first doctor who was much more concerned this time around. She said that she told me to wait a couple of weeks the last time because she was so sure that this was just a weird virus and would be gone by then.
She took 5 more tubes of blood, and ran a lot more tests and all the others from my previous visit a second time. She also ordered a glucose tolerance test and a bone scan...everything came back normal, and the mono test was in fact negative. It ruled out lupus, diabetes, artheritis, anemia, and many other things that I can't remember as well. So now I have no clue now what is going on! I was so sure that it was mono since my symptoms matched my cousin's exactly, but that is for sure ruled out. I am being tested for Lyme Disease tomorrow morning.
Does this sound like anyone else? Or does anyone have any ideas on what this could be?? I'm sorry for such a long post, but I wanted to be thorough! Thanks to anyone who reads this!!!
