    I have had problems with kidney and bladder infections in the past, and now I have increased urine flow, fevers close to 100 and my back hurts on both sides around my kidneys. I've gotten several conflicting diagnoses (pulled muscle, minor spina bifida, degenerative bone disease), but I'm still dealing with all this. I'm having to take at last 800 mg of ibuprofen a day and always feel like I have the flu. Now I have swollen, sore lymph nodes in my neck.  All of this is ruining my life, and not getting an answer or solution is making me depressed, and I think the doctors think I am crazy. I just want to be fixed -- any suggestions?

    It sure sounds like you could be in the middle of an infection of some sort. Have you been tested for pathogens? It must be demoralizing to have so many conflicting diagnoses and to go through so much without getting an answer.  It sounds like you need to try another doctor and explain to him or her that you've received so much conflicting information before and really need an answer at this point. I'm sorry you're going through all this.

    Here are some links that might be helpful as you're dealing with. Best of luck to you!

    Do you live in a City that has a teaching hospital? If you do, try to get a consultation with an Internist there. I've found that teaching hospitals have the best Doctor's, and Doctor's that like to research and get to the bottom of the patient's issue, unlike GP's in the general population. This is my opinion though, but you need to find out what is so wrong with you, so I will start by going to a top notch Doctor, in a top notch place. Take care,

    I went to the Doctor for two years with low grade fever, body aches,felt like I was coming down with the flu most of the time, and could not sleep because of the pain. The Doctor would try to give me anti-depressants, nerve pills, ask how my home life was. I didn't want pills, I wanted Answers! I saw a new Doctor and after some tests, she called to say she was making me an appointment with a Rheumatologist. I have Lupus! TWO YEARS...I am not saying you have Lupus, I am saying NEVER, EVER GIVE UP! I was starting to think it was all in my mind like  the HOW'S YOUR HOME LIFE Doctor thought. I was so confused. Please know you are not alone, there are alot of people like you, and we are on your side. I have never posted anything on any site, but I have felt you needed to hear this. Please take care and May God Bless, V.F.
