I have had a very strange set of symptoms over the past couple of months and my doctor doesn't seem to be able to suggest what it could be, however I cannot go on like this.
I started with feeling flu-like and shaky, then I developed a rash over most of my body which was only slightly itchy but very unsightly. Following this, my ankles became swollen. I was given antihistamines which did nothing, but after 2 weeks the rash disappeared. After 2 blood tests, my doctor says 'no action required' but I am still feeling rubbish and with very sore swollen calfs and ankles. Help!!:(

Help!!:(Have the doctor check you for Fifth Disease, it can cause lots of joint pain, and can start with flu like simptoms and get a rash. Good luck.
