What is causing my fatigue and chills?
For about 4 weeks now I have experienced extreme fatigue accompanied by chills, a mild sore throat, slight head congestion with burning and watery eyes. My doctor could not provide a diagnosis. The blood test was fine. No thyroid problem or swollen lymph glands.
Could allergies cause this? I am 55 years old and have never suffered from allergies before.
I am totally wiped out.

Hello,

There are numerous possibilities in my mind after reading your post.Firstly, as you have said it can be due to an allergic reaction causing allergic rhinitis or sinusitis.Diagnosed by allergy tests and CT sinuses.Take some over the counter antihistaminic like benadryl and some topical and oral decongestants.But pls don’t take the decongestants for more than 7 days.Some cases may require topical and oral corticosteroids.Also inhale steam which helps in relieving the symptoms.

Other possibilities are Typhoid fever,bronchitis(Inflammation of the respiratory bronchi leading to lungs) and delayed viral syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome(Typically CFS follows a viral infection (e.g. cold or viral stomach bug), and is sometimes found after mononucleosis infections).

Pls discuss these options with your physician.

Hope it helps.Take care and regards.
