Hey guys,Almost 5 weeks ago, I caught what seemed like an upper respiratory infection or some kind of bug, it went all through my workplace and almost everyone had it. While everyone else recovered, about a week later I was feeling worse, so I went for some antibiotics from a walk in clinic that thought I may have walking pneumonia. I was feeling much better so I didnt take the z pack, about a week later I went back because I was feeling dizzy with body aches and headaches, and a tightness in my throat, they said to start the z-pack, i ended up going to the emergency room after work because i felt fatigued with chills and numbness and tingling in my arms and legs, the doctor ran a ct scan and did basic bloodwork, and diagnosed me with chronic sinusitis, and told me to finish my z-pack, which I did, I felt better that week, until the end of that 4th week, I had a shooting pain from the top of my ear through my lower neck, i did not return to the emergency room until that tuesday, I thought maybe lyme disease but they did not run any more advanced bloodwork, ive felt off and on better, but am a little irritable, and still have some dizziness from time to time, and that tight feeling in my lower neck, i also have difficulty focusing or finding words at times and stammering, I am never usually sick, and am now on doxycycline for 10 days, but after 2 courses of antibiotics, and im not feeling better in 5 weeks, im a little concerned, does this sound familiar to anyone, please help.
