In mid-July I was clinically diagnosed with pneumonia, and put on 16 days of zithromax.
After I finished the medication, I would have these horrific episodes of feeling extremely weak, as if my body was shutting down. I went to the hospital twice, and every blood test was normal at that point.
I've taken a few dozen blood tests, and the only abnormalities were:
Elevated Eosinophils (in July)
Mycoplasma IGG (in August)
Elevated IGE (in August)
Every other test to date has been in range. Yet, I am still not "back to normal". Throughout the day, I will have these sickly sensations, that are not quite chills and not quite fevers that come and go. It's tough to describe, other than the feeling of wanting to go under the covers and pass out. The feeling usually passes, sometimes when I actually take a nap. At times it has gotten extremely intense.
It's mystified dozens of doctors, including some prominent specialists. My feeling is that I've done a poor job at describing myself, which is why the doctors can't zero in. The only description I've been able to find online that has been similar to mine, has been a systemic fungal infection. But, I'm obviously not qualified to diagnose myself. I began searching for it after a few days ago I was diagnosed with oral thrush, and put on nystatin.
If anyone has any input, or has experienced a similar ordeal, I would love to hear any suggestions, perhaps I can suggest them to my Doctor.
