Hi. About a year ago I got a really sore throat that went away after a few days. It was probably the worst sore throat of my life. Then a couple of weeks later I noticed that my ears were clogged/full so I went to a clinic and got a Z-pack for an ear infection.
My ears didn't clear up and at the same time I was starting to feel dizzy and tired all the time. I also noticed pressure between my eyes, like sinus pressure.
So I went back to the doctors and they prescribed 5 different courses of antibiotics over the past year- including levaquin and a 3-week course of avelox. I was also on prednisone for 3 days for my ears, which seems to have cleared them up although they still sound a bit "sticky."
I'm tired ALL the time. Always. I've had a CT scan and an MRI, which rules out brain cancer, etc. I've also tested negative for:
- Lyme disease
And my white and red blood cell count is normal. I also already had mono when I was 7.
It seems very frustrating that I'm tired all the time. I've also tried Lexapro, Xanax and Cimbalta for possible depression/anxiety...but I don't think that's the underlying cause.
Sometimes I go 3 days without a shower because I'm so tired. I get so dizzy. And sometimes I have tenseness in my shoulders/neck. And sometimes my stomach feels acidy, but it doesn't really bother me.
What bothers me is the intense tiredness and dizziness, like my brain is swirling. Please help.
