Many: There are many things which can cause your symptoms. Sometimes a drug you have been taking may cause similar symptoms (drug fever). If HIV has been ruled out, then I would recommend that you consult an infectious disease specialist to find out the cause.

Stage 2 Syphilis 1:256 treated w/ penicillin. Rash came back 8 months later. Retest titer1:64. 4fold decrease successful treatment so why isrash back?
Rash: It may not be from the same cause. Obviously, I would suggest being evaluated for HIV (I assume that you have), since acquiring one STI may be associated with another infection. Are you on Remicade for Crohn's ? Any new medications? Usually the titers are rechecked after six months for a fourfold reduction which is in your case. Look for an alternative cause - recent antibiotic exposure?etc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can paresthesia in rabies infection last 1.5 months w/out progressing? Web says its a prodromal symptom & would've progressed to acute phase <10days.
It's not rabies: Indeed -prodromal rabies symptoms are short lasting only, and what u describe is way too long for rabies. You may have some other nerve problem though and should probably get it checked. Ur vitamin levels could be too low (B12) or u could have some environmental exposures (alcohol, even lead or a toxin). Then, there are mechanical causes like 'pinched' nerves. Talk to an ID doc if more rabies Qs. ...Read more
