My wife(38 years) has had fever for the last 17 days with the foll. symptoms....
Extreme Body Pain, more frequent fever recurrence in the nights, no cough/ cold symptoms.
After a week of fever, a doc asked us for the foll. tests..
CBP(WBC 28000, RBC 11.2),
FNAC of Cervical Lymph Nodes(suspected Lymphatic TB) as they were enlarged(was clear and the assessment was to conside viral aeitology),
Chest X ray (was also clear)
Despite these results doc made my wife start the anti-TB medication which made her condition worse(Loss of appetite/ Fever/ Stomach upsets). So she stopped taking those medications after 3 days.
We visited a 2nd physician(who said TB is not possible) who suggested that we do further tests and ran Urine microscopy /Urine Culture/ ESR/CBP/LFT/ Vidals test(for ruling out cholera). All results so far have been negative with respect to cholera, UTI. The other parameters remained more or less unchanged.
He has now suggested an ultasound of the abdomen, Mantoux test(TB again?)... Whats happening here ... Can some one with similar symptoms revert back to us with ideas.. what to look for???
