9 weeks ago I developed a mild case of shingles on my face. I went to a doctor early was given antivirals, prednisone and pain killers and the rash slowed and was almost gone about a week later with some redness that stayed for several weeks.
Before that happened. I was on a lot of different antibiotics for what my doctor suspected was a bacterial infection of some sort as well I had a tooth infection. So all in all I took amoxicillin, cephalexin, asithromycin, flagyl all within a few weeks.
Now onto the lymph nodes. Before shingles appeared I had some swelling of nodes on one side of face behind the ear and near the jaw. Once shingles appeared that seemed to be an explanation for that. However, two days after starting the antivirals I developed immense pain which felt like I needed to stretch but couldn't on the left groin which lasted for at least two weeks which turned out to be swollen lymph nodes which were confirmed by ultrasound. That pain got better but never gone completely. That started almost 9 weeks ago, since then more and more lymph nodes appear. I can feel the mild aching strange feeling as they come up on right side of groin, thighs, behind knee, left side of neck near Adam's apple and collar... even a seatbelt causes discomfort on the collar bone area, both armpits and what feels like in the chest but I can't physically feel them there.
I am also experiencing what feels like muscle pain in upper rear thigh inside near groin area? mostly left but seems like it's starting on the right side as well. It's not as bad when laying down but sitting with knees bent and standing is quite bothersome.
I've had mild night sweats off and on, stool has been soft for months with the odd normal one here and there. I am always thirsty for water which is unusual for me. I stopped drinking soda, my tongue is whitish and burns on the edges for weeks and feels swollen...I wake in the morning with what looks like teeth marks on it.
Now, I've been tested for hiv with 12 weeks of abstinence, all stds clamydia, syhillis, ghonorea, hep b and c, hsv 1 and 2 (positive for hsv 1) the sox has also done the usual CBC blood work only had elevated WBC but he said was only slightly. Did CK random urine tests etc etc and nothing is showing up. He says I'm testing normal but something is wrong. Very wrong. He had me convince myself it was HIV causing it but the negative tests don't lie.
I just don't know what this could be and perhaps someone out there on this board has some sort of clue as to what may be happening? I hope my rambling makes sense.
Any help would be much appreciated.
