The past 2 months my 17 year old niece at different times has had low grade fevers. She also has lost alot of weight because she has a severe sore throat, swollen tongue with lacerations on the sides and tips, weakness, tired, does not get much sleep on top of that. She is a runner and claims she has joint pain that is typical of runners. She has irregular periods (none the past 4 months then an extremely heavy one) and abdominal cramps. I have asked her mother to seek a second opinion that the Dr. is a "quack" (other issues in the past that do not get diagnosed). Dr. has stated it's a bacterial infection. This has been going on for 2 months and more symptoms come up. My niece denies sexual activity, drug experimenting, bulimic. Antibiotics are not helping. Please give me some suggestions on how to convince a second opinion or ideas for my niece to relay to the Dr. to have checked. She has had 2 negative monoe tests. Thanks
