For the past several weeks my girlfriend has had an array of symptoms that come and go randomly with no apparent cause. Doctors have not been able to diagnose her. Here are the symptoms.... please let me know if this sounds familiar to anyone:
- Fever that comes and goes randomly.... sticks around for 1-3 days at a time, and then disappears.
- Constant fatigue
- Nausea and vomiting, even when she stops eating food. The nausea is normally worst in the morning, and frequently occurs along with the fever, but not always
- Loss of appetite
- Joint pain, especially in her toes, ankles, and fingers
- Sweating at night, although this could just be from the breaking of the fever
She has been tested for every type of infection known to man and results are always negative, so if your pet theory involves a bacterial or viral infection, your pet theory is wrong. Also, she's been on antibiotics almost this entire time, and they have no effect on the occurrence of the symptoms, in fact, they are slowly getting worse over time. Also, we know that she is diabetic, but she continues to take insulin and maintains normal blood sugar levels while having symptoms, so we know the symptoms are NOT from the diabetes. But this other condition she has might be somehow related to, or exacerbated by the diabetes, or completely unrelated to diabetes.
Please let me know if anyone has any ideas. If I shoot your idea down, please don't be offended... it just means we have been down that road before and have already ruled it out. I'm just worried about her, and I'm looking for any new ideas that haven't been explored yet. Thanks everyone!!
