I've been having the weirdest symptoms ever, like:
severe headache (like nothing I've ever had, more than only head ache!!), tingling/ burning sensation with rash in the whole body (including head/ scalp), photophobia, painful/ swollen eyes, pain and buzzing in ears, painful neck glands, stiff neck, impaired vision and hearing, lack of appetite, night sweats, severe diarrhea that lasts forever, nausea, etc etc etc.
I don't know well what to think, but I guess I could have meningitis? I must mention I had a septoplasty some months ago followed by mumps (15 days after surgery!! how nice!!) - maybe that means something....
All I know is I had a blood test that showed a slight high lymphocyte count. Normal range goes from 20 - 30 % and mine was something like 46%, but it wasn't a coplete blood test, doctors in my country NEVER ask tests and when they ask, they ask incomplete tests. That's why I'm here asking for help, I see doctors but they only guess, never ask real exams for real diagnosis... if you have suggestions of exams I could provide, or other possible diagnosis for those crazy symptoms, please tell me!
* Symptoms have been there for quite some time: some for more than 2 months, other come and go..... most of them are "fading" now, but some are still present or come back (but not as strong as before)
