For about 5 months I have been experiencing weird episodes. Once or twice a month randomly I wake up in the middle if the night with flu like symptoms such as:
-muscle aches in all extremities
-skin gets sensitive to touch (this could be just a result of hypersensitivity due to joint and muscle pain)
-tingling in the chest when inhaling deep
-coughing due to phlegm in the upper respiratory tract
-and headache (sometimes)
-wheezing breath (sometimes)
This last for about an hour, one or maybe two nights (non consecutive) in a month. In the morning following this, I feel very sore, with dull pain in the finger joints and headache, coughing up sputum. Chest may or may not get tingly when breathing in deep.
Have been tested negative on Lyme, no anaerobic/aerobic bacterial growth, all blood results are nominal. Chest X-ray = nothing. Pulmonary Function Test indicated Mild Hyperinflation, but nothing to worry about according to doc. Healthy overall. I'm physically fit. Male, early 30. Do not smoke.
Does anyone else experience something similar and was properly diagnosed? My family physician does not know.
I get mild seasonal allergies around March - May times. This year however I have not stopped coughing in the mornings since march. Family physician seems to think that is due to post-nasal drip. I do have two cats (for almost 9 years) and get itchy if they are too up-close and personal.
Edit: Added Mild Hyperinflation result of Pulmonary Function Test
