I hope you could give me an answer my CRP is 47 ESR 39 WBC 12.5 ,RT assay 27, and ALT is high they couldn't diagnose it . I was in the Philippines when I became unwell started first with sore throat general aches and pain and high fever,then second day diarrhroea for almost a week and occasional dry cough.Then after we came back from Philippines seems I feel ok I thought I have completly recovered.After 2 weeks the similar symptoms happened again so I have been hospitalised treated for possibly LRTI? I had finished a week of antibiotics course amoxicillin and clarythromicin.I had 2 weeks off from work and good rest then I felt ok so I returned to work but only after a week I became unwell again started with sore throat,dry cough and high fever.I had Chest x-rayed showed normal also abdominal scan showed infiltration of fat in liver but they told me it is not significant to my symptoms and bloods result.I am now wondering second time I been hospitalised but they didn't treat me because they don't know the source of it.After my hospitalisation for 3 days then now I have coughing out greenish phleghm and seems I not feeling alright.I hope you could give an answers thanks very much.
