I am a 20 year old female. Last Sunday, I started having a really bad headache and thinking it was just a migraine, I took some advil and continued on with the father's day dinner we were having. My husband and I went home afterwards and my eyes were burning, so I figured I should take my temp and it was 100.7. The next day I went to work, and once my fever got up to 102, my boss allowed me to go home. About 2 hours later I went to the doctor b/c in addition to my fever, I was extremely nauseated and could not keep any food down, and I had a stiff and painful neck. When they took my temp, it was up to 102.6. After testing me for strep, pnumonia, and kidney infection and all of them coming back negative, she determined that I just had a virus. However, she told me that if anything got worse, that I should go to the ER and get checked for meningitis. I ended up going, and the spinal tap came back normal. They sent me home concurring that I simply had a virus. My doctor gave me oxycodone and antivert to help with my headache and dizziness. The meds helped for about a day. Then on Saturday morning, I woke up, and my fever was back, and my headache was worse than ever. I began having alot of dizziness. I started fainting or collapsing when I was walking. After one fainting spell, I got immensely confused, and didn't really know anything about where I was or what I was doing. My husband took me back to the ER and they kept me overnight. Sunday, they did an MRI/MRA which came back looking relatively normal. Despite my inability to walk without assistance, they sent me home saying that it was probably still just the virus doing this to me. My normal doctor keeps saying that my symptoms should be gone by now, but they arent, they are progressively getting worse. I am getting rather worried b/c I can't focus on anything, my vision is blurring and doubling, I feel as though everything is constantly spinning, my head feels as though it is going to be able to explode, I can't do much for myself right now, and because of this I may end up losing my job b/c I can't go to work. Does anyone know what could be wrong with me?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
