I am 32/f . 5 ft 3 110-115 lbs. When I was 19 I was diagnosed with EBV and I also had a lymph node biopsied that came back normal. Fast forward 13 yrs --For the past year now I suffer from intolerable night sweats, weight loss, intolerance to the cold, fatigue and body aches and severe body pain all over. I was tested for Lymes, Thyroid function, RA and Lupus/ANA. All came back negative and or normal except RA.

Since this past saturday I have been unable to get off the couch or out of bed due to the sever aches and pains throughout my body. I took the prescribed percocet and didn't help at all. Last night I went to the ER because I was in excruciating pain. ((This was the second time in my in my adult life I cried tears of pain; first was before my epidoral while delivering my son 3 years ago.))

The ER doc gave me Dilaudid in my IV for pain which worked nicely. He also did the following blood tests. I had to ask for a copy.

HCG Qual - Negitive
CMP - Normal except CL- slightly elevated
CPK - Normal
Sed Rate - Normal

CBC - RBC - Low /// MCH - High /// % Neutrophiles - High /// % Lymphs - Low /// Absolute Neutro - High /// ABS Basos - None 0.0
MDIFF - Bands - High at 12 ** was 7 on 11/8/04 while I was in ER for vertigo at 7 months pregnant** /// Lymphs - Low

The ER Doc told me labs were ok and to follow up with Rheumatologist. And sent me on my way. What does all of this mean??
