Had a virus in December. Never fully recovered in my book.
At onset I had Hip & lower back pain on my right side that got better after the 2nd antibiotic. During this time I battled, a massive resporatory & sinus infection. On and off stomac pain and loose bowels are still a problem. Changes in the tissue of my right cheek showed up 2 mtns ago. Working on biopsy, but consult thinks it could be infection rather than cancerous. After getting over the resporatory infection I noticed dissyness that never left and continued to get worse over time now include numbness of my scalp and face. Severe sensitivy to touch. presure feeling behind eyes, periodic swallowing irritibility as well as periods of weakness if I rub my neck or back of my head. Sometimes, the weakness just comes.. lasts a few minutes and is over. Most recently, the numbness is moving towards pain.
I noticed a sensitive tooth and a dentist thought I need a root canal.
I experienced some relief of symptoms with an antibiotic for the tooth, but afterwards the symptoms are soon increasing again. Going on 4th month. Very weak, increasing confusion and disorientation. I think it is an infection, Dr's think I'm nuts. Infection of what? could my hip and head/neck issues be related? help. starting to notice breathin problems again.
