this all started about 5 months ago 4 days after my late farthers passing i started getting pains in my testicle so i went to ANE and was checked for lumps ect he said there was nothing to worrry about and he said its just anxiety.shortly after i got shooting pains in various parts of my body and my glans started to swell..so i went to my doctor and he said i may have a viral infection.so the glands went down and hen came the headache which ive had now for 2 months after many visits to ANE and my dctor they both got very aggatated my doctor has now refused to see me after hes last visit when he said the symptoms were all in my head and said there was nothing wrong with me medicaly obviously meaning i was crazy..i ussualy keep my temper to myself but being in such pain i shouted verbal abuse at him and he toke me of hes register.ive had blood test after blood test and they all come back clear..i also feel like im pulsating all over..i lay down and feel the pulse on the side im laying on i hear cracks in my head at night my whole head feels like its burning.i can also feel my pulse in every vein in my body and get a tremor inside my body that is like the movment you get from a hicup. i find myself crying uncontrably at the totally disregard for my health by doctor and the staff at ANE i spend every day in physical pain and have nowere to turn..i would rather pay for healthcare then have it free and useless.and help or information on what i could have would be gratfully appricated.i could barely get out of bed on my farthers funeral and had to use every ounce of strengh to do it.i have swollen lymph nodes and hard tender muscle tissue in various places and a bubbling sensation that in my legs and abdomen. im also having eye floaters and seeing stars.me and my family shouldnt be going threw this at such a terrible time

  • How old are you? Have you traveled out of the country? DO you have a rash? Do any of these symptoms come and go, or are they continuous? How would you rate your pain 1-10 10 being the worst?

  • "hard tender muscle tissue in various places" describe this in more detail, where, what is it, is it visible or do you just feel it on the inside, or can you just feel that there is something there when you press on it? Do you get fevers?

  • have your dr do a pet scan to rule out cancer have them biopsy a lymph node. tell them to check you for hodgkins disease. read about it first and them decide if your symptoms match. one odd thing i found out that when you have a alcoholic beverage and have cancer such as hodgkins you have pain in the effected area. good luckthis all started about 5 months ago 4 days after my late farthers passing i started getting pains in my testicle so i went to ANE and was checked for lumps ect he said there was nothing to worrry about and he said its just anxiety.shortly after i got shooting pains in various parts of my body and my glans started to swell..so i went to my doctor and he said i may have a viral infection.so the glands went down and hen came the headache which ive had now for 2 months after many visits to ANE and my dctor they both got very aggatated my doctor has now refused to see me after hes last visit when he said the symptoms were all in my head and said there was nothing wrong with me medicaly obviously meaning i was crazy..i ussualy keep my temper to myself but being in such pain i shouted verbal abuse at him and he toke me of hes register.ive had blood test after blood test and they all come back clear..i also feel like im pulsating all over..i lay down and feel the pulse on the side im laying on i hear cracks in my head at night my whole head feels like its burning.i can also feel my pulse in every vein in my body and get a tremor inside my body that is like the movment you get from a hicup. i find myself crying uncontrably at the totally disregard for my health by doctor and the staff at ANE i spend every day in physical pain and have nowere to turn..i would rather pay for healthcare then have it free and useless.and help or information on what i could have would be gratfully appricated.i could barely get out of bed on my farthers funeral and had to use every ounce of strengh to do it.i have swollen lymph nodes and hard tender muscle tissue in various places and a bubbling sensation that in my legs and abdomen. im also having eye floaters and seeing stars.me and my family shouldnt be going threw this at such a terrible time

  • try blood work for a virus, syphilis and herpes 2...rule that out and then come back..get a new doctor. If you don't get help with one, go to another, however I'm not sure how the plans work in other countries...

  • I am a female age 46 and had attacks of illness since age 12. I had lots of drs. think I was crazy and telling me I did something to bring on my symptoms. I was not diagnosed until I was 32. So if anyone knows what it is like it is me. I suggest you contact the National Institute of Health in Bethesda Maryland and the Mayo Hospitals in Scottsdale AZ or the other one they have in the east. Tell them you are looking for help as you have been unable to find a dr that can diagnose your illness. Usually, you have to pay for transportation the first visit. The NIH does not charge your insurance company but Mayo does. I know they will and can help you. Best of luck.
