Symptoms since December 2009: Fatigue Pins and needles felling down the back of both legs. (sitting is the worst, laying better but never goes away) Hot water feels like the skin is coming off - cold water is fine Weakness Dizziness Weight loss 20+ lbs in 3 months Joint pain Generalized Adenopathy (lymph node inflammation) Headache Blurred Vision within the last week (most when looking at small print) Nausea Low sodium levels Orthostatic hypotension (resolved w/treatment)
Tests: MRI negative CT showed the adenopathy Lumbar puncture negative EMG neagative Biopsy of axillary lymph nodes - negative for lymphoma
Nothing makes it better. She was in the hospital for a week and a half and is getting progressively worse. They sent her home with no diagnosis (except DEPRESSION!). Could she have an infection from a sick animal or some rare thing?
