Help! I started getting sick on April 7th. My throat hurt, my glands were swollen, etc.... it lasted a week or more so finally I went to the ER on April 12th. There I was diagnosed with lymphadenopathy and sent home. It did not get any better, in fact it got a whole lot worse, My throat hurts so bad I can barely swollow, I have started hacking up blood from my throat in the mornings, I started having headaches everyday, and constant crippling pain in my hips, knees, lowere legs, forearms and shoulders. So I went to the ER again on May 4th where they tested me for mono which came back negative. Has anyone else had these symptoms? I am in so much pain at this point I have been missing out on my life. I sleep all the time, the pain in my extremities is so bad that I go through bottles of asprin tylenol and Ibuprofen. I am beginning to think that something very serious is wrong. The doctor at the ER told me to go to the health department and get tested for HIV, Tuberculosis, and Hepatitis C, so I will be doing that on Monday. I have a copy of my blood and urine work from the ER and have posted it below in case anything sets off any red flags to anyone. I have no idea what is happening, I just know I am really sick and want to get better soon. Below is my blood work and urinalysis.


My symptoms are swollen glands for 2 months, sore throat, fatigue, headache, body aches especially my hips, knees, and lower legs some pain in my arms and shoulders. If you know what this is, or have any information please post! Thank you and God Bless!
