Getting kind of worried now...

Mar 03, 2018 - 2 comments

Hi. I'm assuming no one is reading this, but if you are, great :) 3 days ago I was struck with a sudden severe headache and fever of 101.4, alongside several other symptoms that I'm too irritable and tired to mention. I took some pain medicine and called it a night. Yesterday I woke up with a sharp, stabbing headache that felt like a chainsaw drilling through my head front to back, along with severe irritability and sensitivity to light and sound. I passed it off as a morning thing but the pain wouldn't subside, even with acetaminophen and ibuprofen. yesterday my fever had risen to 102.5, and only slightly dropped with the use of Tylenol. Today my fever reached 103.4, I've become forgetful. (for instance I forgot which drawer the forks were in after living in this house for years, I had to ask my boyfriend for help xD) I was feeling slightly better so I tried to stop taking medicine, at which point I curled into a little ball and rocked back and forth. I'll probably post this in the undiagnosed symptoms forum as well because I'm stumped as to what this is. The pain is just so excruciating I honestly want it to end more than anything else. Also, I joined this site for the very purpose of trying to diagnose my symptoms but it seems like a really nice community so I might stick around a while :)

I see you didn't post anywhere about your symptoms and this journal was on March 3; I hope you found something out in the ER and are feeling better now.

Thank you! I went to the ER and they gave me a bunch of painkillers, did a blood test  and admitted me overnight to see if I felt better in the morning and if my fever got worse. I felt a lot worse in the morning and my fever stayed the same. They did an EEG and CT scan which were both inconclusive so I'm getting a spinal tap sometime today. I still have no idea what it is. Thanks for reading this and I hope you are having a good day :3
