Smile need your expertise

Hi friends,

Never been sick before and I am a woman in my late 40's. Started 6 months ago when i got home from a business trip. I felt a lump in my lymph node and then started getting flu sick they took the whole lymph node out and it said reactive process. They sent me to a infectious disease doctor where I had nothing which was good.
THe big problem is this, I have fevers every single day and I also have rashes on my knees hands and purple feet. Some days I am fine others I cant move.

THey did a Lupus anticoagulant test and it was 99 and normal range is less then 120, which I was thinking that 99 is almost borderline high.

They did Igg Subclasses and my IGG1 and IGG 2 came back low. Cortisol low WHite count low. I am exhausted from this not positive for RA. just got my igm back and that too is low.

If any of the experts have any idea what this could be, I would appreciate your help, thank you

Re: need your expertise

Wow you sure have been through the testing! I feel for you. I remember prior to being
diagnosed with RA that I too had fevers practically every day, as well as feeling so so
tired I could have rolled over and died at times. The lymph node on the right side of my neck has been intermitantly swollen/painful since I was 30 years old and is still like that to this day and I just turned 59. I hope this helps in some way and pray that soon you will be diagnosed so you can feel the relief like I did when I finally found out the reasons for feeling like I did. Good luck to you. Trenity

Re: need your expertise

thank you so much for giving me some answers. I did not realize that people with RA also had fevers and lymph problems.

Thank you again and I hope your feeling well!
