In March I had a kidney infection and sinusitis. I was treated for that and both were cleared up. I then began to have severe back pain and went through many tests including an MRI, CT Scan and x rays... determined I had scoliosis and have been receiving chiropractic care for that. They put me on Soma, Celebrex, Percocet and Oxazepam... I've been able to split my soma dosage in 1/3 and I stopped taking the percocet and oxazepam because I have been feeling better as far as the back pain. After a few weeks I developed a constant fever of around 102-103 and nausea with vomiting. I had another CT Scan, 2 nuclear gallium scans, about 30 different blood tests for lyme, lupus, rheumatoid, hiv, hepatitis, etc etc... all normal. They can't find a single thing wrong with me. I've been to 8 doctors... including an infectious disease specialist, 2 neurosurgeons, a kidney specialist, etc... The fever is now 3-4 times a week between 100 and 102... and the nausea is about 4 to 5 times a week, but i take promethazine, so I have only lost about 15lbs since this started... I'm also on lexapro now because i have PTSD, depression and anxiety... All I know is, I can't work, the doctors have given up and I am completely frustrated because my life has been stolen from me. Anyone have any ideas?
