I have been sick for three months now it started with a tummy virus and then they told me I probably had mono. My symptoms are weight loss (30 pounds) fatigue night sweats, getting breathless when active and back pain upper right side between shoulders. When I am up and doing chores Round the house I become very tired not sleepy ( not sleeping because of night sweats and back Pain) I had chest pains for about a week they went away. They did a EKG it was fine and oxygen test fine. Blood work showed high red blood count 5.66 high hemoglobin 17. High hemacrite 49. Any ideas? Of recent there has been dark spots in my stool and urge to poop when I don't need to at all. I need so relief I can't do normal things or even go outside!
