Whats wrong with me? helppp please
Im 18 years old, in July of 2008, i crashed on my dirtbike and had knee surgery(cut that went deep to my knee joint so the docs cleaned it out), well i spent 3 nights in the hospital, 4 days. They gave me tons of antibiotics through my IV which would make me nauseous at the time. Up until July, i was 100% healthy, never had any health problems at all. Since i got out of the hospital i have been sick constantly. Heres a quick list i typed up.
Pre-July 2008 Healthy as can be, occasional colds.
July 11th, 2008 Knee surgery, in UC Davis for 2 nights
August 9th, 2008 2 hours, sick to stomach, then fine
August 14-30, 2008 Random nausea, dizziness, bad feeling,
stayed home from school
August 30, 2008 Feel like crap(morning), throw up(10a.m.) and feel fine
August 31, 2008 Feel horrible, hung over feeling, all day
September-December Random bad days, feel hung over, bad, just want to sleep and lay down, no appetite yet I haven’t eaten all day
December 22, 2008 Catch flu, sick for 3 days, recovering for 5 days
December 31, 2008 High fever, throats swollen
January 8th & 9th, 2009 Sick, high fever (102degrees), lymph notes on neck still swollen
I have been to the docs several times, my first doctor thought i had acid reflex, so i was put on protonix, which didnt help. I drank barium and had xrays taken to see if i had an ulcer, which i didnt. I had blood tests done, which included a test for h. pylori. Everything was healthy though.
Obviously something is wrong. I just want to feel good again. My question, what direction should i look? Could this be an HIV/aids contracted through the hospital? And lastly, if i have blood tests done, would it catch an HIV or aids if it wasnt specifically tested for?
Sorry to go on and on about it. Thanks for any help. I truely appreciate it, Andrew
Also, in august i started smoking cigarettes, i quit and havn't smoked since december 30th. Could i have been slightly allergic to them?
