Yes, my syptoms are pretty much lie yours except the joint/body pain is all over and I totally swell up all over. I usually try to ride it out for a max of three days but by that time I am just so out of it due to the lethargy, dehydration with the diarrhea that I call the Dr. before I have to rush to the ER. That is soooo not fun.
Sadly since being diagnosed I have yet to have a series of regular good days so when someone asks me how I feel, I could honestly reply I feel sick and not too hot but what is that going to solve?
one more thing that I just noticed after my post... I am now a regular member!!
WHEW HOOOOOO!! I feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside - lol (Okay - so I am a dork )
