Sore Joints

I was perfectly OK one day and the next day experienced extreme pain in all my joints.  The joint pain followed a rash which was followed by watery diarrhea.  Could Cycloporus be the cause?

This is actually a real condition that you need to go to a dr and get medication for.

What kind of rash? Im worried about lyme or tick bourne illnesses. There are a wide range of symptoms but those are usually the main ones! i have chronic lyme and the longer you wait, less likely it is that they can cure it. ( if you have had it underlying for a while, it can become unresponsive to typical treatment, which is what is called chronic lyme and there is no cure. :( my advice, get  tested ASAP and by a knowledgable dr ! doctors arent made to study tick bourne illnesses in depth, so a lot of them will try to tell you its not real.

    Aside from Lymes disease, it could be Lupus.  Both present with joint pain and a rash.  Fifth disease also presents with joint pain and a rash.  
      So there you have at least three leads.  Now you need to be diagnosed.  I believe a rheumatologist would be your best "bet".   A "rheumy" would be familiar with all three diseases as they all cause join pain.

Wishing you the best...

The rash was red splotchy.  But it cleared up in 8 hrs by taking an Allegra.
Thanks

The next day after all the previous symptoms went away, a new symptom  began as follows:  When I breathed in deeply a burning sensation (or some may say a cold sensation) occurs in the lungs which triggered a chill and short period of shaking.  There was a low grade fever in the evenings when this started 2 months ago.  The fever went away but the cold air sensation remains but without the chill.  I was referred to a lung specialist by my family doctor.
The lung doctor ordered a CAT scan of the chest, a breathing test and breathing treatment.  The CAT scan showed some small areas of fibrosis and the breathing test showed a diffusion capacity of only 37%.  
But I have not been able to get either doctor to comment on the cause of the "cold air sensation" when I breath in deeply.  Your opinion?
That is my only symptom.  I am not caughing much to speak of and I feel good now.  I want to wait a while before a biopsy is done to rule out Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.  Your opinion?
