I'm having a very strange set of symptoms lately and I'm just wondering if anyone has any advice or personal experience about it. I'm a 23 year old generally healthy female. Over the last couple of months I have gradually begun to lose my memory and ability to remember things that I learned or that happened the day before. I have been so terribly fatigued lately as well, I can't open my eyes long enough until I pass out again. I have had a few days this week where I didn't have class, and I ended up sleeping right through until 7 or 8 pm at night, getting up for a few hours and passing out again. A few days ago I noticed that my skin was so itchy all over, it just kind of happened. Then, a red, rectangle shaped painful rash appeared on my lower back (left side). It's also very itchy. I have developed lower back pain and on my front left groin (lymph node area) I have a painful swelling growth there. Does anybody have any ideas? I would be really appreciative. Thank you so much.

  • I hope you get this message because I have the same thing: I had the incredible all over body itch, now the lumpy rash at my lower back yet it does not itch, and swollen lymph node which caused me to run to ER due to the pain, I thought I had a hernia. I have been so sleepy and tired ....please get back to me if you can. thanx
