I am currently suffering through another bout of a problem I have experienced before. Usually wake up with extreme chills, panic, and sometimes diarrhea and vomiting. Today it has lasted all day -- coming and going. Sometimes temperature drops to 96 something but today always between 97 something and 99. Feels like food poisoning but no fever? Feel like punched in kidneys, bad muscle aches, and of course the extreme chills requiring multiple blankets in a 74 degree room. Also aching testicles like in a high fever. Not surprisingly very lethargic.
Health history is cluster headaches since 13 and often get them after a "fit" like this... although had cluster headaches long before these fits. Today that happened again and headache was a 12 on the pain scale of 10. Diagnosed bipolar although not 100% sure about that. Docs had me on a laundry list of meds including Actiq which I tried to quit cold turkey which earned me my diagnosis. I take 150mg Lyrica daily and 50mg Seroquel. No other meds or OTCs except Excedrin and oxygen for headaches.
