thank you so much for your concern about my daughter when you are exhausted and trying to maintain as you go through this painful time in your life.
your description of your skin issues from stress, could that possibly be from shingles? of course, i have not taken the time to look up those symptoms, but i do know that blisters appear and stress does bring it on.
as for my daughter, who is now 43 y/o, she became extremely tired and started having intermitten fevers. her temp would go up to 103, back down a bit, then back up. this has now been going on for more than 2 months. several of her liver enzymes go up slightly and i think come back down. tylenol manages her fever. this for a woman who never took any meds for anything her entire life. i am worried sick about her. the first "uninformed" doc she went to, dx her with bronchitis although she had none of the symptoms. unfortunately, she did take antibiotics for quite a while. eventually, she saw an internist and then i urged her to see an infectious disease specialist. she has done that and has had endless blood tests along with an ultrasound. still no concrete dx. suspicious for epstein barr. however, i don't believe that a person with that disease runs a temp as high as my daughter michelle. she told me again today that she's exhausted, lying in bed, no appetite.... this is the triathlete in our familly and tends to go like a house on fire.
today, i sent her info about two docs at USC and hope that come monday, she will be able to get an appointment with one of them. however, she will have to pay out of pocket. that's another story.
thank you again for your concern and for the info on your mom. i tell you Lisa, any mom or dad would be lucky to have you as their daughter. bless you my child. i will be thinking of you.
i don't come here everyday, so it takes me awhile to "catch up."
much love to you,
