i am 28 yo male 5'10" 180 lbs. I had ear infection 14 months ago which was treated with ciprodex. since that time i have had episodes of , numbness/tingling/burning/muscle pain/joint pain in both my legs and right arm, burning thyroid problem, rapid heart rate, eyelid twitching, body wide twitching, gastrointestinal problems, dry eyes, dry nostrils, dry mouth, and fatigue
i am CRP/ESR/CBC normal with a normal brain MRI and negative ANA, RF and HIV
The neurologist that saw me thinks I might have sjogren's or lupus (my father has discoid lupus). Since all of this started after the ear infection that I mentioned, can it be 1)Sjogren's/lupus trigered by ear infection 2)adverse reaction to ciprodex since i might have overdosed 3) rheumatic fever since my ear infection was lingering for a couple of months until it was fully cured? which one is more likely?
I am dying. I am thinking about getting something to take and die. I live in Canada and here it takes months until you see a specialist. I have an appointment with a rhematologist in a couple of months. I just cant take it anymore. it has been going on for 14 months up and down, up and down. please help me.
