Thread: Diagnose this and give a treatment.

  1. #1

    Default Diagnose this and give a treatment.

    First let me say that I already have a Dr. appointment for Tuesday.

    Next let's practice for the event that you may need it. I will describe the symptoms and let all you bush doctors go to town. When I get back from the doc I will let you know what she says.

    For the past 2 weeks I get a fever after eating anything of 100 to 101 degrees that lasts for 1-2 hours then followed by overheating for a couple of hours to the point I have been putting ice packs on my chest to cool down. On two occasions now I have woke up in the middle of the night soaked from sweat as though I had just jumped out of the shower.

    Any nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, or pain to go with the fever?

    I'll take a guess and say its something to do with your thyroid...

    Don't eat anything that's between 100 and 101 degrees that lasts for two hours. If it's lasting for two hours maybe you're eating too much. Most of my meals are consumed within several minutes.

    If you're eating and getting afever for it I'd say let the doc figure that one out, no clue here on what that could possibly be.

    There are several things that can cause those symptoms, but with out nausia or chest pains I will guess it's blood sugar related.

    its not salt, iodine or blood sugars. your symptoms are somewhat vague.

    weight loss?
    cough?
    recent travel?
    joint pain?
    rash?
    skin sores?
    appetite?
    abdominal pain?
    change in stool color or form?
    what are you eating?
    anyone in your family with celiac disease?
    '' '' '' '' '' inflammatory bowel disease?
    do you still have your gallbladder?

    Have you had your water checked?
    Anything else that would would be consistent with every meal you've eaten?
    Do you handle wildlife (dead or alive)?
    I'm gonna guess it isn't menopausal hot flashes...

    No to all including no gall bladder. I have been eating the same diet as I have been for the past 2 months which is to eat more veggies and less processed food. Now I do need to clarify that I do feel achy when the fever hits but it just feels like fever aches and leaves when the fever does.

    Water is safe. I moved to town a couple of months back and use the municipal water with a filter on the sink.

    Menopause
    Idiopathic Hyperhidrosis (night sweats with no identifiable cause)
    Infection
    Cancer
    Medications such as niacin, nitro, tamoxifen, etc.
    Hypoglycemia
    Hormone disorders
    Some neurological conditions

    I think we can rule out menopause so take your pick on the others.

    Diet:
    Mornings: consists of a piece or two of two and a cup of coffee.
    Lunch: is usually some fruit like apples, bananas or grapes and a piece or two of string cheese.
    Dinner: has been a protein such as chicken, beef and pork. We eat a lot of taco's . Sides are usually boiled veggies and potatoes. I would say that one third of our dinners involve a pasta.

    Work: I am back in school 5 days a week and have no contact with hazardous materials.

    Water filter is a ceramic filter.

    I guess some more back ground may help. My colon ruptured in '99 and was not fixed for 4 days. Long story, but the second surgery I had to have 10" removed. Since then I have had my gall bladder removed. I have had 4 surgeries to remove scar tissue that was strangling my intestines and I have had 18 hernias that have been repaired. The reason i am back in school.

    I have had close to 40 bowel blockages and know exactly what those symptoms are and how they feel and even how the body reacts.

    Normally I would wait and see if things clear up if it seemed related to my previous history. This however is just strange. No other symptoms just the fever and aches that go with a fever and then sweats 3-4 hours later.

    The silver lining to all of this is that I tipped the scales at 340#'s in the last year, (Ten years of surgeries have taken it's toll.) and I am finding that with this condition, I am not wanting to eat near as much as before.

    oh and someone asked my age, 38

    Been in the woods lately?
    Is lyme disease in your area.
    Folks here have some pretty strange side effects from this.
    But judging by your problems with gastrointestinal,i'd say it leads back to that.
    Look up Diverticulitis,I know somebody that had this.

    No lyme disease that I have ever heard of in our area.

    Whatever it is, I hope you get to filling better shortly.
