Here's whats going on:
06/09 - I got a UTI infection of the urethra, due to my prince albert piercing.
I saw my doctor, 1 week keflex prescribed, cleared up no issues.
01/10 - UTI Infection is back. Called doctor, 5 days keflex prescribed. Infection symptoms cleared up.
5 Days later, pain came back. Same symptoms. Called doctor, 5 days keflex prescribed. Symptoms disappear.
Removed piercing before next infection.
1 day later, I get a pain like I've never felt before. Diagnosed kidney infection, 7 days avelox.
Avelox feels like pure ***l to me, make my body feel horrible, barely made 7 days.
2 weeks after this series of events, symptoms initial infection begins.
04/24/10 - E.R. for an immense sensation of tingling and full body numbness. E.R. doctor says hyperventilation
Symptoms that developed over months:
tachycardia, high blood pressure, fever, severe constipation, severe dehydration, weight loss (40 pounds in 5 weeks), severe dizziness (couldnt stand without looking down), chest pains, muscle pains.
05/03-05/06/10 - Symptoms too severe, admitted into hospital.
3 days later, diagnosed as Clostridium Difficile from toxins in my stool sample.
10 days of Metronidazole, symptoms clear up, finally get to have a month where I feel better. I eat correctly, I work out, I even am about to enlist in the Navy as an Intelligence Specialist.
06/04/10 - I go to MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) and pass the full physical, drug tests, etc, but I am temporarily disqualified from the service due to tachycardia (127 bmp upon arrival, 107 after 20 minute rest and water, 100 after 30 minutes more)
06/10/10 - I start feeling pain in my lower back, like an ache.
06/17/10 - I have such a pain in my back its getting ridiculous now.
06/20/10 - The pain becomes the worst today. Stays relatively the same for a few days (4), then slowly begins to disappear.
(lets just call those them arthritis-type pains)
mental issues (a little difficulty with speech, blanks, thinking and reading slower)
constant low temperature (normal body temperature down from normal 98.6 down to normal 96.9-97.5 after C. Diff. and never went up)
some stomach/bowel issues (constipation, slight stomach pains)
first 2 weeks walking without cane extremely hard, use of cane since to help
***I have had a headache that has lasted the entire time I've been sick. When I had C. Diff, I just thought the sensations in my head and body were because I was sick. I still feel the headache/pressure and everyday, along with sensations that go down my neck into my upper back.
Along with these symptoms, after looking for anything that could help diagnose me, Ive only really found one thing. I have a positive Romberg's Sign.
I still have all these symptoms, and this will be the eight month in a row that I haven't felt real relief. Someone help
