So Sick And Scared
Hey. I need someone to help me and give me any advice. 3 weeks ago I came home from Fall Break from college with a swollen gland. I then started having UTI symptoms like urgency to pee and burning feeling. That turned into horrible body aches especially in my legs and all over. My doctor then put me on Levequin because he saw white blood cells and blood in my urine. However 2 days later (2 weeks ago today, Wed. October 31), my fever shot up to 102 and i was in so much pain all over. I went to the ER. After 12 long hours, they came in and said that my liver enzymes were highly elevated and my blood platelets were extremely low so they decided to admit me. I was in the hospital for four days. My blood levels came up a little bit and my liver enzymes came down. They tested me for STD's and all kinds of things. In the hospital, my stools became extremely bright yellow and watery and my urine all kinds of colors. They said it was probably from my liver. They brought a blood specialist in but she said that my levels are probably low because she thinks everything is viral. So, they sent me home and told me to "wait it out." They tested my blood 3 days after I came home and my liver enzymes were back up. They sent me for a liver scan and abdomen scan which came back normal except for a cyst on my liver but that it was prob. from the virus. They are kind of calling it a mono-type hepatitis and that it should just run its course. However, I'm feeling horrible. I'm very weak and tired and feel "out of it." The only thing that has gotten better is my fever. Just the past 2 days, my throat started to feel like it was closing and I had difficulty swallowing. I had white spots all over my throat and a white film on my tongue. I followed up with the GYNO because I saw one in the hospital due to the UTI symtoms. She said my STD tests came back negative but that i have bacteria still down there and a yeast infection. I'm so scared. I have cloudy things that come out of my pee and the urine is like clear and bright yellow, where it kind of separates. I also have an anxiety disorder that has been under control for 3 years until now. I can't seem to shake the feeling that something else is terribly wrong since the mono-spot test came back negative. I know they said you could test several times before it comes out positive but I can't live with that. I just want to feel better. I need to get back to school. I'm a 4.0 student that is highly involved. I'm very depressed and wake up everyday searching for improvement and I don't see any. Please help me!
