Mysterious illness

Jun 18, 2015 3:17 PM

Well my white blood cell count was higher than normal and they found droplets of blood in my urine and lately I have been having terrible headaches and low back pain. And I have been swelling up for no reason at all like out the blew and it goes away and comes back. I'm not allergic to anything and haven't gotten bitten by anything because I don't have any bites on me that can cause me to swell. Also I have been having very bad chest pains that has been spreading from one side of my chest to the other side and at the back of my chest. It is hard for me to take deep breathes in and my temperature has bend rising and falling and I have been throwing up badly. I have passed out once because of the pain and I have been seeing double vision and feeling like I was going to pass out. Idk what doctor I should go to for these symptoms or should I go to the hospital idk I am scared. I've never experienced something like this before.

I've had literally every symtom you've listed. They may not apply to you, but I will tell you what my symptoms ended up being:

1) WBC/blood/headache/back pain: UTI
2) Swelling: Poor circulation and heat intolerance
3) Chest pain: I was finally diagnosed today with POTS and mitral valve prolapse

Try heading in to the ER, and if they don't find anything, ask your GP for referrals out to different specialists. Neurology, Cardiology, and Urology may be a good place to start.

If say the ER, because if they suspect anything they can run tests and you won't have to wait for them. Saying a prayer for you! 🙏🌼

I would make an immediate trip to the ER because any doc you need will be right there. I pray you get help and it's nothing serious.
