Angry Cant Take It Anymore!!

THIS IS ANGEL AGAIN. I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM STILL SICK WITH THIS THING. COULD ANYONE PLZE TELL ME IF THEY HAVE EVER HAD THESE SYMPTOMS THAT LASTED THIS LOOOOOONG. :

1ST SYMPTOM; SORE THROAT (BEEN 2 1/2 WEEKS STILL HAVE IT), RED, SWOLLEN, LIL RED BUMPS(NOT WHITE, NOT ON TONSILS)

2ND SYMPTOM; PAINFUL, SWOLLEN LYMPH NODES, GLANDS AROUND NECK COLLAR BONE, UNDER ARMPIT, GROIN AREA (STILL HAVE THOSE)

3RD SYMPTOM; LOW GRADE FEVER ONLY LASTED A COUPLE DAYS

4TH SYMPTOM; MUSCLE ACHES, FATIGUE (STILL HAVE THIS TOO)

5TH SYMPTOM; ON AND OFF HEADACHE, SOMETIMES SEVERE

NEW SYMPTOM STARTED 2 DAYS AGO; DRY PAINFUL COUGH

I TESTED NEGATIVE FOR STREP. MY DR. FIRST THOUGHT MONO THEN RULED THAT OUT WHEN I GOT THE COUGH. RULED OUT ALLERGIES CUZ MY GLANDS ARE SWOLLEN. WAS ON ERYTHROMYCIN FOR 7 DAYS, DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING (THINK IT MADE IT GET WORSE ACTUALLY) STILL ON DARVOCET FOR THE PAINFUL SORE THROAT AND NOW CHEST. WHAT IS THIS? AND WHY WONT IT JUST GO AWAY. I AM NOW ON BEDREST FOR 72 HOURS! AND IF THAT DOESNT HELP I HAVE TO BE ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL (VERY HARD TO EAT) CAN A VIRUS LAST THIS LONG AND BE SO SEVERE? ANY SUGGESTIONS, COMMENTS, OR ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. I FEEL LIKE DEATH!

Re: Cant Take It Anymore!!

Have you been biten by any ticks before? Try to find a doctor that knows and will order the western blot test from califonia for Lyme disease...the hopital test give you about a 70% chance to come up negative so really try to find a doctor that will do that mine does and hes in Connecticut.

I Have Never Been Biten By A Tick. My Cough Today Is "productive". If That Means Anything. My Doctor Is Now Looking At "allergies". But I Thought Allergies Didnt Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes, Glands. I Dont Know. Any Input On That?

Re: Cant Take It Anymore!!

You know how many people are diagnosed with Lyme disease that have never been bitten by a tick. That they can "REMEBER". My friend has Lyme and she has to be hospitalized many times and she dosn't remember being bite by a tick.......Ticks are soooo small you could of had one bite at any time and never knew it!

Re: Cant Take It Anymore!!

My alleriges make me how some bad sore throats, but my glands don't swell up...well, maybe the ones in my throat, but no everywhere else...and I don't think the ones in my throat even swell up that often.

Exclamation Re: Cant Take It Anymore!!

Hi, my name is Teresa and I have your same symptoms. I am going nuts. In fact my doctor can't figure it out either. It started with your basic cold/flu symptoms then just kind of kept changing and dragging on. I was convinced I had mono as I have had that before. Swollen glands in neck, stiffness of the neck, fatigue, slightly sore throat. I had the mono test, and it came back negative! Either this is all in my head, or it is something new. I have been sick for well over a month. I do not have a fever to go along with this either. It feels very limiting. I am a mother of 2 small children, and do not have time to just be sick, let alone have something that drags on like this. Let me know if you hear anything new. I am going to an allergist in the morning, and if this isn't gone in a couple of more days, my GP wants to send me to an infectious disease specialist, to help figure out what to test for!
