Exactly one year ago, I developed flu-like symptoms, such as nausea, high fever, loss of appetite, general fatigue, migraines, as well as a sore throat. About a week later, I was admitted in the hospital, and was there for 35 days. The symptoms turned out to be pancreatitis, high spinal chord fluid pressure, (I received a shunt,) an pneumonia, meningitis, gallstones, a viral conjunctivitis and inflammation of my knees. In that time I received many tests, but never a diagnosis. After I was discharged, I didn't think too much about my illness. However, lately I have been experiencing weird symptoms. I noticed an oval-shaped bald spot on the side of my head about 3 weeks ago. Also, I've had facial muscle spams, and what feels like nerve shocks, usually in my head. I don't know if everything is related, but I would love to have a diagnosis!

  • Did they test for mycroplasmas and tick/misquito infections? Sounds like those could be possible. Best wishes, Dee
