I live in the tropics where, due to an escalating development, there are many outbreaks of Dengue in the area. I have been to the clinic 4 times for blood and urine tests, which all come up normal. The doctor is convinced that I do indeed have the virus,by all of the symptoms , it just doesn't show up. For the past year, however, I had been suffering with extreme muscle pain, headaches , and fatigue. There is a great hospital here, but I spoke with the head of rheumatology and he said that he does not believe in fibromialgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. I wish he would come and clean my house then. I am generally an energetic, well balanced 57 year old female. I have been doing horse tours for 10 years, and am not even able to ride my own horse. I am dizzy, tired, and have muscle cramps at night, headaches, terrible fatigue, and severe muscle aches.
On reviewing the threads on this panel, it seems that there are a lot of well informed people and mystified ones as well. I am wondering if there are any drug interactions with blood tests that through them off. I take ibuprofen with a mild amount of codeine to just be able to move around. Any suggestions?
