June 2006
First time experienced fever (2:00am)
The fever was gone at (8:00am) – after I felt fine
Along with fever, I experienced nausea.

September 2006
For 3 days in a row, I felt weak and nauseous
I did not have bowel movements for 5 days at (however I ate regularly 3 times a day)
Also, one other day that month I also had fever which lasted about 2 hours.
At that time, urinating was very painful with extreme burning sensation.

I am always very gassy and bloated, even when I eat very healthy foods.
I am often awoken at night with extreme upper abdomen pain. This happens usually when I eat heavier food, and later then 8pm. The pain feels like there is something stuck in my stomach.

July / August 2009

3 weeks in a row (one day per week)
Coincidently ever Friday (only at night – after dinner)
I would have extremely high fever which would last 6-8 hours. (38-40 C)
One of those times the fever was accompanied by vomiting and nausea.

Each time this happens, I do not have any other symptoms. Fevers arise randomly with no purpose.
Sometimes daily, (also randomly) I feel sharp dull pain the mid abdomen area (sometimes burning pain which last about 2-3 min)

1 year ago, I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid. (Hypothyroidism) I take Synthroid (thyroxine) medication. 0.075mg.

These symptoms have been occurring for the past 4 years. Every time it seems to get worse and lasts longer. After the last flu (Nov 2009) I feel my chest trembling, (a very scary overwhelming feeling), accompanied by mid chest pain, feeling of heart racing and very feverish feeling however no fever present. I often feel weakness in my body. (Exercise does not help). (I do not beleive it is anxiety) I have also had left side neck pain. Ultrasound has detected a very small node (bean like shape) which I can also feel with my finger. Apparently it is not very important and poses no risk. This pain has been a real bother for the past 4 years as well, creating pressure feeling in my head. My eyes always feel pressure, and my face is poufy.

I have very irregular bowel movements. (Sometimes 2-3 per day), and sometimes 2 times per week) It is never regular. All these symptoms happen so instantly without warning. There are never obvious reasons for this. Blood tests are always fine (except my triglycerides levels are high) Should be less than 1.7 (I have 5.5 – 7.7)
