So far all tests and blood work ups do not show anything that explains frequent body aches/flu symptoms, should I give up on an answer?

So far all tests and blood work ups do not show anything that explains frequent body aches/flu symptoms, should I give up on an answer?

2nd or 3rd opinion: No - I think it is important to try and get to the bottom of your symptoms - that would be the best way to figure out a plan to get better. Sometimes you need a 'team' of doctors and I wonder if you've seen an ID specialist? Different doctors think in different ways, and I think you need a specialist or 2 to help out. Hope your primary doc can get the ball rolling here... ...Read more

Constant flu symptoms but normal blood work, could a recent spinal tap have triggered fibromyalgia or something else?

Constant flu symptoms but normal blood work, could a recent spinal tap have triggered fibromyalgia or something else?

Doubtful: I don't think a spinal tap would trigger these symptoms. Did you have the spinal because you were having headaches or other neurological symptoms? If so then I would attribute the flu-like symptoms to the illness and not the tap. Have you had your bloodwork checked? First place to start trying to feel better is your diet - cut out all "white" or processed foods; eat 5-6 small meals a day. ...Read more

Flu symptoms, fever, kidney pain weeing blood for 2 days feel awful what can I do? Painkillers aren't helping.

Blood in urine: You sound like you may have pyelonephritis (a kidney infection). It is very important that you go to your doctor or the er to get a urine culture and then most likely will need to start on antibiotics. It is also important to make sure that it is not a kidney stone or an acute kidney inflammation called glomerulonephritis. A few blood tests and urine tests can help figure out the answer. ...Read more

Flu symptoms, fever, kidney pain weeing blood for 2 days feel awful what can I do? Painkillers aren't helping.

Need to see a doctor: I would be worried about taking any over the counter pain killers except tylenol (acetaminophen) since you may have kidney disease. The blood in your urine can be from a stone and the fever could mean you have an infection from an obstruction. Alternatively you could have a glomerulonephritis (inflammation of your kidneys) from some other cause). It is important that you are evaluated. ...Read more

Possibly: Bleeding can occur when having cold but usually the bleeding is mild. If you have excessive bleeding, then you need further testing for bleeding disorder, nasal problems or even rarely cancer (e.g. Leukemia). I recommend that you get checked and get blood work done soon.. ...Read more

Regular body aches and flu symptoms. Neg spinal tap, neg thyroid tests, neg blood panels, some low platelets, always feel sick and no idea what to do?

You need a good Doct: You need a complete History and physical examination done by an internist (have you consulted one yet?). Send us the actual reports of any abnormal blood tests, like platelets which you are concerned about. If your appetite and weight are normal, you are likely to have no serious disease. Sometimes you have to just ignore minor aches & pains and do daily exercise. That in my book is the best medici ...Read more

Back pain, no fever, no blood in urine. Lost the feeling of having to urinate, could it be related to back pain? Have you ever heard of this feeling?

No urinary sensation: Loss of sensation of need to urinate suggests a neurologic deficit. This, combined with back pain could indicate low spine problems - from a pinched nerve to slipped disk to an abscess in the area putting compression on nerve roots. Any loss of neurologic function like this needs investigation. Doc needs to do good exam to see if any other neurologic deficits, and then may need MRI or CT of area. ...Read more
