Hi been unwell for the last 7 months, had severe chest infection treated with doxycyclin, then had collapse episode and weakness/pain in left arm and leg, and also non specific chest pain.
full workup at a/e ? viral and sent home all cardiac tests fine, had ongoing "discomfort" in chest and another increase in symptoms so returned to a/e again all tests fine. week later had severe episode and this time was admitted with ? viral pericarditis again all cardiac tests fine, ongoing lethargy and muscle pain/weakness like severe flu. had course of non steroidal anti inflamatories and symptoms where much better, chest pain mostly all went, have had since then headaches, tingling in arms, rigors for no reason and major increase in blood pressure when symptoms severe ongoing lethargy and muscle pain.
now have chest infection and on doxycyxlin again- spasms much worse. past history of migrains and hypertension. family history of arthritis and ms. good relationship with both gp and consultant, also im a/e nurse. so could this be lupus, any thoughts or advice greatly sought
