Maybe SLE maybe not.: Diagnosis of rheumatologic disease is generally based on symptoms with support from lab. Sounds like you have a rheumatologic disease and are being treated with a rheumatologic agent perhaps by a rheumatologist. They can explain your particular situation better, but suffice it to say tests are not always right and a single test does not generally make or break a diagnosis. ...Read more

Unexplained bruising all over body, fatigue, wieghtloss, headaches, loss of appitite, body aches, mild dizziness, weak legs. What going on with me?

Something of concern: We get questions about "a bruise" all the time...those are not this much of an issue:
Generalized bruising
Weight loss

The other symptoms are hard to characterize (body aches/weakness/mild dizzy) since very common and usually from minor things.

The degree of both of the concerning symptoms I cannot tell without an exam for your situation. But deep/bloody bruising worse but exam/tests regardles ...Read more

Swollen groin lymph node, headache, body ache, dizziness, fatigue. What does this sound like?

You are afraid: It could be infection, or cancer. It really sounds like you are afraid to address this and I want to encourage you go to the doctor. It is very unlikely to just go away. If I had to guess, I would say it is an infection and you just need antibiotics. That gives me hope that this is curable. But even cancer in this region is very sensitive to treatment.

24 year old boyfriend has had 100-103 fever, body aches, and dizziness for two days. Been to ER and doctor, they don't know what it is. Any ideas?

Hard to say: Assuming they did blood work, your doctors may think it is a viral infection. If his symptoms continue through the weekend, followup with your doctor. At his age, I would watch out for rash, blisters, or changes in mentation. Could be a first time herpes infection or simply the flu. Don't be shy about bugging your PCP if he doesn't improve. ...Read more

Chills, sweats, fever of 104 at the highest, body aches, vomiting, severe dizziness, nausea. What could it be?

See MD ASAP: It's probably an infection of some sort, perhaps a rather severe one. However, there must be a hundred or more different infections and other medical conditions that cause such symptoms and there's no way to guess at the cause in your case.

Depends: If these symptoms have been present for just a few days, it is likely from a viral infection.
