Yeah i've been really sick since August last year. I've lost over 100lbs in weight.I have UC but i'm getting more tests to rule out Crohns and cancer but i haven't had any results.I had small bowel series last week and i'm due for a catscan next week.But i've been having burning in my hips and back since August.My arms and wrists have just started to burn. I noticed a hard lump on back of my right hand then my left hand. Then started getting swelling around wrists. Showed my doc who started me on glucosime sulphate. I've been off pred since sept.I'm also having bad spasms and twitches all over my body which get worse at night. My feet always feel as though they are freezing and my hands get like this a lot too. But this burning in my skull is doing my head in.I seem to be very stiff around my neck so i suppose it could be coming from th nerves in my skull going crazy. I also feel as though the joints in my face are inflamed too.I took some Voltorol to ease the inflamation but don't know if they are up to much.
Only this week i have had fevers and just can't get out of my bed with tiredness. I wake at 8 and i'm looking to go back to bed at 10am, and i really be exhausted i'm not lazy at all. Makes a change from my first 4/5 months being sick when i couldn't sleep.
when i read your post, it was screaming "NEUROLOGICAL" to me for some reason. gut instinct? maybe. but the fever, spasms & twitches and spreading of the burning concerns me.
when can you see a doc? i would really want to rule out any viral thing going on causing this burning feeling and extreme fatigue.
oh my...well please, if you still have a fever see someone about it, even if it must be the ER. to at least get some labs done to be on the safe side.
please take care. let us know how you are doing okay?
