I have been ill for three weeks now; my symptoms are the following;
- Chest infection (first prescribed with anti-biotics, then went to hospital on my fourth day of taking them with no improvement, then was put on a course of steroids).
- Rash (mainly under armpits and groin, look like hives)
- Swollen palms of hands, swollen lip and eye.
- Tips of fingers peeling.
- Loss of appetite.
- Nausea occasionally.
- Weak and exhausted.
- Lack of sleep due to constant coughing.
I have been to the doctor four times now, and I have been tested for glandular fever, however the test has came back negative and the doctor has said that I am 'on the mend' however, my symptoms are persisting and i do not feel satisfied with what the doctor is telling me and sleepless nights and constant exhaustion is becoming very frustrating.
I would really appreciate it if anyone could give me an idea of what this could be, or if you could give me any advice.
(Another thing that may be worth knowing about is that over the past year I have had numerous problems with my bowels, with bleeding and mucus on the stool, and very irregular bowel patterns. I have also been to the doctors and hospital for this; however I am yet to be diagnosed.)
