Patient : I have experienced pains in my limbs and joints for the past month, these are constant and nagging pains then sudden shooting pains, two weeks ago I went to the local walk-in centre as have a very swollen stomach and pains, that move from low abdominal pain to the chest to the back, and was diagnosed with a Urinary infection, and given 3 days worth of antibiotics, i returned two weeks later with the same symptoms and again was given the 3 day antibiotics, I then went to see my own GP who gave me a stronger weeks worth of anti-biotics and a months worth of tablets that help the digestive system. My other symptoms are sickness, constipation (bowel movement every 3 days even with laxitives), when I do go its diarrhea, my glands in my neck are now swollen and I have a hard lump on my collar bone above my left breast, it doesn't move and feels like bone and is sensitive to touch and my chest hurts but my GP listened earlier and said it sounded ok. She has diagnosed me with glandular fever and has sent off a blood test to confirm that. She has changed my anti-biotics to amoxycillin for a week and said the lump is probably related to the gland infection. GP had also sent numerous blood tests and said that my cholestral has suddenly raised to 7.5 and that another showed an infection but my urine came back clear. I also have headaches. GP sent off blood test for GF and rheumatoid arthiritis. I also have red pinprick spots on my stomach, back and breasts, they are flat and not itchy. My stomach is still v painful and really swollen, I can't get my usual clothes on round my waist and I constantly feel full, and my urine is green, the lump is worrying me and I am constantly fatigued. Previous to this I hadn't been to a Dr for two years so am not exaggerating any of the symptoms.
