I was diagnosed with "Lieshmanisis, Unspecified" after the folks at Water Reed Army Institute of Research did multiple blood tests and three bone marrow extractions. The titers were high and elevated on the blood tests but they were never able to "isolate" the bug in the bone marrow. This is/was common for this test. Some of the guys that were there when I was there had the bug in the marrow one day and gone the next time the doc's looked for it. They also diagnosed me with chronic Q fever.
My symptoms include cardiac, neuro, GI, dermatology, and other problems: Loss of vision, night sweats (not sleeping), dizziness, painful abdomen. Which are symptoms included in the symptom?? lists for both diseases.
Oh well....enough to make even your hair hurt.
