I was in Thailand in August. I ended in hospital there with blood in urine & B/P 200/130. I have returned to NZ but my B/P has remained high (170/120) & I am currently taking blood pressure medication. ECG shows heart beating along at 60-62 beats/min. I am getting tremendous sweats 3 - 4 times a day. So much so that my hair is totally wet, and I need a towel to mop up. I have developed pain in my lower left 2 ribs which has spread to the same area on my spine and has travelled down to my hips and again down to my quadriceps. I have a constant contunual deep ache in these areas.

Blood/ urine tests & CT show all is OK. I insisted the Uroligist have a look a couple of weeks ago & that showed red spots on bladder, and acute cystitis - have been on antibiotics ever since - but am getting nowhere. Biopsies of red "spots" showed nothing. Any suggestions from anybody would be appreciated.
