frustrated with mystery symptoms

I've been having flu like symptoms on and off for approximately 7 months. Over the last 2 months my symptoms have gotten worse including swollen lymph nodes under right jaw and behind ears, dizziness, lightheadness, loss of balance, fatigue, occassional abdominal pain, rib pain, body aches, chest heaviness, on and off diarrhea and nausea, occasional rash on face, itching, sensiitivity to light, shortness of breath. The most recent symptom over the last 2 weeks is a low grade fever that comes and goes. I've had a variety of tests all of which are normal. I'm going to see an infectious disease specialist later in the week. Does any one have similar symptoms or a clue what might be going on?

Re: frustrated with mystery symptoms

I know this is kind of old, but i was just wondering if you ever got an answer to your problems. I have been suffering for years with some of your symptoms plus tons of others. I have tingling on the top of my head, feeling off balance and all the things you have plus more. I have had every test none to man with no real answers. hope you are doing better. LaLa

Re: frustrated with mystery symptoms

Interested to hear of your on and off symptoms. My husband has had similar symptoms on and off for nearly 3 years now. May have a couple of weeks when he is OK and then it returns. Tests have found nothing & no evidence of infection. Would be interested to know the outcome of your visit to infectious diseases specialist. I think you live in New York - possibly you have better access to such specialists. We had to wait 6 months.

Best of luck
