I am not sure where I should post this, so if the mods feel it is better on another thread, please move it...
I am posting this in search of a strange viral infection attacking my oldest son (22). This started 3 years ago and at the same time of the year, (which is now) he falls violently ill. Here is a list of symptoms.
The first two years:
Bad back ache w/muscle aches
This year he has vomiting.
We took him to the ER last night, because his head pain was more than he could bare and nothing was releiving it...That is when we found out it was not the flu, they did a swab nasal test on him, it came back negative to the flu.
The ran a CBC, electrolites, and all showed perfect. They sent off some of his blood to be tested in culture...
The doc said it was a viral infection that had to run it's course...He ruled out menigitis because he was still alive at this point, if he had it he would have already past on from it...It's been cycling now for 2 weeks...
