Looking for guidance as local physicians have been unhelpful
Hello everyone, I am new here. I am not here to seek diagnosis and treatment just to clarify what I am experiencing, to possibly pinpoint what it could be and how I can deal with the problem I am experiencing.
So over the last 4 months I have been having concerning symptoms. In which order they have appeared I do not remember exactly anymore.
I had pain in the face and head which was on occasions accompanied by numbness. I believe I have lost some sensation on one side of my face because when I touch the other one, I feel more. There has also been itching. This has been going on for about a month and then went away, but has now resurfaced after 3 months. I have also been experiencing severe pain in my hands for 2 months, to this day it hurts when I wake up and it gets better as the day goes on. For about 2 weeks I had severe pain on the right side of my flank, it felt really swollen. Since that developed, now for almost 4 weeks, I have been having low grade fever that comes and goes (99.5F-102.2F). I believe I am starting to develop knee and elbow pain. 2 times since then I have had an episode of visual hallucinations, multiple times impaired vision and 2-3 times change in mood and behaviour.
Other things that I have are ankle pain, throat ache and headaches, sometimes pain in the toes. Everything comes and goes and at this point I am very hopeless and have become severely depressed.
Any advice is appreciated.
