Thu, Aug 1 5:48am · High temperature, heart rate, and chills associated with mental health in Depression & Anxiety

Thank you so much! Google is a great tool to use. Maybe they should make a show out of my case called Stump the Doctors.

No I haven't seen that kind of doctor yet. I keep hearing the doctors wanting to find the cause of the high temperature instead of all the symptoms combined. Not sure if there is a purpose behind just looking at one symptom or what.

Thanks! I think an Auto Immune Spec. is about the only doctor I probably haven't seen yet. I just wish one test would come back with some sort of answer or lead us to answer.

I remember my first episode happened when I was in the Army doing office work, shredding paper and other things. That evening I had to go my ambulance to the ER. Another episode happened after working out, spent 8hrs trying to get the heart rate back to normal in the ER. I've tried looking at food by documenting it but nothing has come to light. Episodes have occurred in different seasons. One episode did take place after having an argument. That was the last time. As far as an infectious disease doctor, i've seen my local one. He didn't offer any test outside some blood work. He never could pin point anything in the office. Plus i've had an MRI on the brain, echo, allergy doctor, gastro doctor, chest xray, ct scan, blood works by the dozens. ultrasound. All come back negative. That's why I was leaning towards mental health because I read somewhere that certain cases it can raise your temperature.

I have thought about getting a second opinion. Actually just had a genetic test done to see if my dna had any sort of trait for high temperatures. That came back negative for any dna trait. I did see a mental health counselor and she said it was panic attacks, but I cannot fully believe that because each episode that takes me to the ER has been different. I cannot think of anything that would trigger me into an attack either.

Some of the symptoms line up with some of the above mental illnesses, but what is confusing to me is what is triggering them. I cannot recall something triggering me into an episode. The episodes start out either very slow and get worse or come on very fast.

Sun, Jul 7 7:26am · High temperature, heart rate, and chills associated with mental health in Depression & Anxiety

So long story short, for the past 11 years i’ve been in and out of the hospital for 103 temperature, 120+ heart rate, chills, shaking and some other minor things. The doctors in both the hospital and my regular doctors office have run almost every test available with no answer. Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone in here for possible mental health issues? Anyone else have something similar? I have been trying to google to see if any connections but would love to hear straight from those who maybe dealing with the same issues. You would think after 11 years of ER visits that someone would suggest mental health which leads me to believe maybe its not. Just looking for some guidance.

These episodes only last roughly 4-24 hours. Some are more severe than others. Sometimes they come on slow and I can take care of it at home. But mostly they come on fast and going to the ER will help. I've tried getting in touch with some of the guys I was with and none of them are experiencing what I'm going through. I have been looking into every aspect of the Army in my medical files to see if something clicks. Thank you so much for the response! I'll definitely share my experience.
