I am so sorry you're having these disturbing symptoms. I can understand why you're not exactly sure what it is. The whole constellation doesn't seem to squarely fit any one thing, although is does sound bartish to me.
Can you get some labwork done to check on viruses, etc?
Well I know I have EBV and Herpes I. Chicken pox herpes way back when I was little. No herpes 2. No HIV (already got tested this year). Never got tested for CMV I believe it's called.
What other viruses that fit these descript
ions are left?
Oh, I did google strep bacteria. And that gives you chills, achiness, swollen glands, and headache as well. It is a more severe streppy sore throat than a normal cold sore throat.
However, I do know Bart can give you a pretty bad one too. I did experience a milder sore throat that came and went, came and went multiple times a day before this. Almost like it was building up to this moment.
