I have just found this forum after weeks of googling to try and work out what is wrong with me. I wondered if anyone had any ideas. as my symptoms do not seem to fit with anything in particular.
I had been feeling very run down for a long time and after looking online wondered if it was liver related as I had my gallbladder removed 5 years ago. Tried to eat healthier but still did not feel right. At the beginning of September I went on a very rare night out and had a few too many to drink; however, I became much more drunk than I should have been so stopped drinking alcohol. Despite this I got more and more drunk to the point I could hardly stand. I was then violently ill the next day with constant bright yellow vomit. For the next 4 days still felt hung over and with really bad pains in the left side behind my ribs. I then went back to my normal self, but was very confused as to why I had been so bad and even wondered if my drink had been spiked. about
3 weeks later, I was just getting into bed when my eyes suddenly went very itchy and my face felt puffy. I looked in the mirror and my eyes were bright red to the point I could not see white. In the morning, they were slightly red but that was all. Over the next couple of days they were on and off itchy, with the redness coming and going, but then cleared up. During this time I ached all over and couldn't get warm and thought it was flu. I then noticed my urine was a very dark strange orange color so googled it and found it could be hepatitis. Went to my GP who did a blood test and found my enzymes were sky high. By the next day, I became jaundiced and was throwing yellow stuff up again and had a high temp. Was admitted to hospital and discharged after 6 days as my enzymes started coming down and they presumed Hep A. They did an ultrasound but it did not show anything odd.
Hep A, B, C have now all come back negative but it is 2 months later and I still feel dreadful. My bloods have come down significantly but are still a little raised. The left side of my body keeps going weak and slightly numb and over the last couple of days it has spread to my right arm and hand. I am physically exhausted to the point I can barely speak, and when I do sometimes the words come out as jibberish! My GP has done so many blood tests but the only thing that has shown up is bone marrow suppression, which can happen if you have been ill anyway, and elevated anti-nuclear thingies for autoimmune which they say could be high if I've had a virus.
I'm feeling so low and scared as I have 2 young children and worry what will happen to them if it's something serious.
I was wondering if anyone has similar symptoms or any advice so I can work out what is wrong with me?
