Hi. I am a 20 year old female. My boyfriend and I just moved from Colorado to the NW a few months ago. Before we moved I had a really odd illness for 4-5 days. Firstly, my upper abdomen would randomly cramp intensely for about 15 seconds then it would go away. This happened all throughout the day. Next, I had fevers at night and would sweat it out while sleeping and i mean SWEAT a lot! Throughout the whole day I had hot and cold flashes. I was on the couch all day and whenever I would stand up my upper stomach and the back of my lower head would really hurt for about 20 seconds then it would go away. Every time I coughed (i am a smoker so that might be why i had a cough) the lower back of my head would again hurt badly. I also had a loss of appetite and was physically fatigued very easily. I went to the doctor they told me I probably had an intestinal virus. I was a little skeptical just because my symptoms were so odd, very unlike any other cold or flu I have had before. But, like I said after 4 or 5 days I was feeling better and have been doing great untill now. Two months later most of the symptoms are back. The symptoms are not as intense as they were but they are still very present. I don't really have a headache this time but I am starting to feel one coming on when I cough. (maybe my headache is from coughing so much) I am not so concerned about the cough as I am the abdominal cramping and fever, chills, hot flashes. I just went to Urgent Care. At first they didnt know what was wrong with me but they now have a better idea after some tests. My urine test came back with blood in it. The blood tests they took showed that my white blood cell level was high (suggesting infection). The doc said they were going to further test my samples but that it was looking like a kidney infection or kidney stones. Im supposed to hear more info in two days. But i am a little concerned.... ok no im not going to lie im a little scared. Everyone I speak to finds my symptoms odd and the fact that my illness came back is odd too. I just want to know if anyone can relate to me or if anyone has any other ideas of what it might be or any advice, anything! Thanks for reading. I appreciate your time.
P.S: I do not know if this is of any concern but my boyfriend had minor symptoms of the same thing when i first was sick and now has minor symptoms of the same thing again with me. (ex: headache, upper stomach pain) Weird???
P.S.S: We eat extremely healthy. We were in a lake a lot this summer so, my mom thought it could be giardia but when i brought that up to the nurse she dismissed it because i do not have severe diarrhea. Throughout the times ive been sick i have had loose stool a few times but nothing intense.
