For the last six weeks I have been extremely fatigued, have no appetite, and my body just feels totally out of rhythm, as if I'm going to pass out at any minute. Multiple visits to the doctor and numerous blood tests have turned up nothing. They said I'm not anemic, and thyroid profile was good. I also had an echocardiogram with good results. I showed the doctor swelling on both sides of my neck near the clavicle and he just thought it was strained muscles. He said he didn't feel any lymph nodes. Based on my research, I'm really concerned about Hodgkin’s disease or some other disease that can not be detected with standard blood tests. I have occasional fevers and chills that lasts a couple of hours, and the muscles in my shoulder and neck area are sore. Motrin seems to help. I also have occasional muscle twitches in one of my biceps or the thigh area. Some days are OK and then others I feel like I can't even walk to the front door. I'm sometimes very aware of a pounding heartbeat, although when I check my pulse it's always in the 70 - 80 range. The only medications I take are Nexium and Benadryl, and now Motrin when I feel a fever. I am a 40 yr old Black male with no medical problems other than seasonal allergies and acid reflux. The only surgery I've had was ACL reconstruction 6 months ago. What could be causing these symptoms and what other treatments should I try?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
