History: 23 y.o. female. I've been working at a daycare with 3 month -3 yr olds over the past few weeks, but last week was my first full (47 hr) week on the job.
Last Wednesday night (5 days ago) I first noticed that I was unusually full after a small dinner. Then Thursday morning I had a few episodes of diarrhea. For the next few days I had dull non-localized lower abdominal pain on and off, and constant complete loss of appetite. (As in, I couldn’t even finish a lean cuisine, and I still felt like I ate a Thanksgiving dinner. I have never experienced this before – I always get normal hunger pangs, even when I’m nauseous). I had one more episode of diarrhea Friday night. I also noticed by then that I was burping all the time, way more than usual. On Friday, I also noticed some blood in my underwear which I found out were a few (3 or 4) small pin-like holes on my inner labia that eventually filled with white fluid (I’m guessing/hoping their ulcers?). They hurt to the touch, but not otherwise. Over the weekend I continued to have the vaginal lesions/loss of appetite and also felt some light headedness. Then, on Sunday night, after a particularly garlicy dinner, my mouth got extremely dry (even though I drank plenty of fluids that day) and I got a horrible case of furry tongue (which I’ve never had before). Today (Monday) I developed a sore throat as well. My appetite is getting better at least. I went to the doctor today, and she said that she thinks this is all caused by stress/loss of sleep. I just think that there are too many symptoms which I’ve never experienced before, and something else must be going on. I could have easily caught something from one of the kids (I carry them and change their diapers, so there’s great potential for transmission). Or maybe the stress did bring something dormant in my system out, but I really think something else is going on besides just stress. Any ideas? Please help!
