Had blood work ups from various specialists, lumbar puncture, all negative but often get body aches similar to flu, can they be missing something?

In brief: LP for body aches

I know I must be missing some of your presentation & history because it's awful scary & professionally embarrassing to think that either a neurologist, ER doc, or PMD thought they'd make a DX with a chief complaint of body ACHES & flu Sx's by doing an LP.
Please tell me that you also AT LEAST had a rigid neck and at least a little fever?
