Do you still have your wisdoms teeth?

I see the OP answered they were gone already a couple posts down, but, excellent question. One of those relatively benign things that can cause immune-system flare-ups, which this kind of seems like.

On that note - how about possible allergens? We can develop allergies at any time in life, and in some cases, they could cause such flare-ups of the immune system. You (OP) had thought Lyme as a potential - the reactions can be similar. Lyme acts like an auto-immune disorder - regular exposure to allergens can act the same at times. If you haven't, get an allergy test done.

I skimmed through the thread and didn't see any references to military service. I was thinking of symptoms thought to be related to exposure to Depleted Uranium dust. A lot of vets have had difficulty getting properly diagnosed in reference to Gulf War Syndrome.

Was the OP involved in the clean up after 9/11 in New York? Similar issues.

Just trying to make sure all the bases are covered.

I don't want to be that guy (or girl, as it were) , and please believe that I am saying this with the very best of intentions but...have you considered the possibility that it may be psychological? Perhaps try visiting a therapist, even if you're sure it's not in your head, it can't hurt to talk to someone about what you're going through. I'm not trying to be a wise guy, or disparage what you are going through. I've just seen real instances where people have actually THOUGHT themselves sick. More often than not they were going through an especially stressful period of time in their lives, and that stress seemed to manifest itself physically, more so the longer they went keeping it to their self.

I hope you get to feeling better, very soon! ((hugs))

Don't know if anyone has mentioned this or not as I haven't gone through all the posts...

If your temperature is elevated, you may be sweating - here is an interesting article on that.
A good question to ask is what is your carb intake vs. your protein intake - you may need more carbs?

Could you have a sinus infection? The Diesel smell, fever and lymph nodes might be related to that.

Have you had any blood work done? A cbc? White blood cell count (it seems like you must have.)
They were normal? Have you been to an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist or allergist?

I wish you all the best. I'm so sorry you are having a medical mystery that is causing you distress.
I am not a doctor, btw - just interested in helping. Good luck and good healing.

I believe you have Morgellon's Syndrome! It's a self replicating nano particle that acts similar to a virus. When the particles are well progressed in the body, you may find red and blue fibers growing in lesions in the skin that are identical to the red and blue fibers that are found on United States currency. If you feel as if your symptoms are very similar to this syndrome, you cannot treat it with fundamental medical techniques; you need to stop the replication of the particle with an EMP(electro magnetic pulse) which can be found on several physics websites such as Good luck and I hope this helps!

Have you ever had your liver functions tested or your kidney functions tested... If you sweat ammonia that's why.

I've gone through a similar situation different symptoms but misdiagnosed for 24 months. My skin was yellow by then and was losing massive amounts of weight turned out had an internal infection due to gall stones or (sand in my case).

That being said it really sounds to me like one of two things

1. Some type of brain issue such as infection or disease. Bad teeth - infections can spread to the brain or cause brain diseases such as "the suicide disease" as it's known as is an example of a real disease that is so painful most individuals kill themselves. Only know of it because my brother has it. Took them 5-6 years to finally figure out it wasn't "just in his head" no pun intended

2. My first thought though was possibly and allergic reaction to say a dye or type of material, such as cotton, your exposed to on a daily basis. If you developed an allergy to red dye and didn't know it, just in food alone, the average person consumes red dye multiple times a day everything from drinks to cake. Not to mention your clothes will almost always contain cotton. More rare case could be your allergic to your own skin for example. I've heard of this but have never actually re-searched it.

If your from the united states try to get a referral to the Mayo clinic in Minnesota. If they can't figure it out chances are no one will.

If the medical people can't figure out what is wrong with you they will shuffle you off. Swollen lymph nodes in the neck....Are you taking any kind of medicine, I had that problem taking a med that I was found to be allergic to. I can't even remember what drug it was off hand, I was really sick at the time from it.

I have to know a lot more about this before I can help you to get back to normal again. One of these areas may be the drain for the lymph node, it may be plugged for some reason and can't drain out. I'll try to figure it out but will need more information so PM me. I wouldn't be considering helping you but it appears the doctors do not have a clue and are dumping you.

Some symptoms sound like acidosis.

I do have an appointment with a neurologist coming up at the end of the month so I will make sure to mention this to him and see if he can try to rule this out/ confirm this as a possible cause

Thank you!

Thank you for your post - I can confirm that I do have tonsil stones - the whitish area I was talking about though is separate from these, it is almost like a film covering the bottom part of my tonsils. (If I push my tongue out of the way and look it is almost looks like it may go quite far down my throat as well)


I had my kidneys tested because I had read that when they are overloaded / working not at capacity ammonia will be excreted through sweat - but the tests came back within normal range. My doctor speculated that the ammonia build up could be due to the fact that I lost my appetite when this all started and haven't been eating properly and that my body may be eating my muscles which produces ammonia as a by product, or something along those lines

Thank you for your post - Yes I am unfortunately sleeping with my head only around 3-4 feet from a smart meter on the outside wall of my house - only thing separating us is cinder blocks, dry wall, and thin insulation. I also have a wireless router in the room about 10 feet away.

I have had 3 or 4 lyme tests done - but not by a doctor that specifically specializes in it though. My family doctor did suspect lyme at the very beginning when all of this started as a culprit but we weren't able to confirm it, I will see if I can find a doctor with some specific experience with Lyme though, thank you

Thank you for your reply - I am currently trying to get a web design company off of the ground with a business partner, things seem to be picking up at this point. Unfortunately I've always had trouble with learning in the traditional school setting, I prefer to read and experiment by myself rather than have to learn and demonstrate things that other people decided I need to know... I am struggling to gain a Bachelor's of Computer Science from Athabasca University, which is an online university for "people with other responsibilities in their life", having a lot of trouble sitting down and getting it done though.

I do have a partner of 11 years that I began seeing in high school, unfortunately the relationship still feels like a high school relationship and I often stress about it quite a bit, so I think that you are likely right in thinking that this could be playing a role in all of this

Thank you for the sparkle!

Hi Heff, thank you for your reply - I do not own and have never owned a cat, though I do own a dog and likely have been exposed to by products of rodents, racoons, chipmunks - I live in an old house that did until about a year ago have a significant mouse infestation

Thank you for your reply - I had my wisdom teeth removed a few years ago, though my lower right extraction area never really seemed to heal properly, I have had it looked at by eye and through diagnostic imaging and was told that it is just a hole with scar tissue inside

Thank you for reply - I'm glad to hear that your illness has gone away - fingers crossed that mine can leave as mysteriously as it came as well! I did try an e-cigarette but it just wasn't satisfying the cravings enough so I gave up and wen't back to tobacco

Unfortunately I did try staying at a friends house for about a week (it is a new house without any mold problems that he knows of), but the symptoms persisted

I am wondering if perhaps I should try staying a couple weeks instead, just as a test

Thank you for your post - It is odd because one of the doctors did notice that my white blood cell count is normal during the times I feel fine - but I was fortunate to have a blood test scheduled for around 4:30 pm (close to when the symptoms always start for the day) and the WBC was analyzed as elevated on that test.. I do think I should head to the ER on one of the really bad nights so that I can have tests done while it is happening

Thank you for your reply - I have not served in the military, nor was I involved in the post 9/11 cleanup, though I suppose it could be possible that I live close enough that some of the particulate could possibly have reached here

Thank you for your reply - I have also wondered if I might be going a little bonkers, and this has even been suggested by one doctor that refused to continue seeing me, he told me to see a psychiatrist. I followed up on his advice and the psychiatrist found that I suffer from mild to moderate depression, social phobia, mild attention deficit disorder, and borderline obsessive compulsive disorder, but he did assure me that aside from those issues he did not consider me to be lacking in the sanity area - and that he couldn't establish any direct conditions that would make me predisposed to thinking myself sick, though he did not go as far as to completely say it wasn't possible

Hug gratefully accepted, thanks!
