Default Re: Unsure and confused

Thanks so much for the reply.

I did see a rheum but forgot to mention it (another symptom or just the Tegretol and Lyrica, Idk). He strongly suspected a parvo virus but his blood work ruled that out. I was tested for Lyme as well. And besides a borderline-positive ANA (I've been tested 3x -- always 1:80 homogeneous), everything else was normal.

As I mentioned, I am active (or used to be) and walk a lot but it's mostly pavement. I rarely trudge around in the woods -- but who knows what might be lurking here and there.

My new neuro and the rheum both said "Sounds like a virus" when I first spoke of the onset but they didn't find anything in the blood. The rheum thought it would burn out but it hasn't. There has been an evolution though. Some symptoms have remained constant or worsened but others came and went. I'll bring up the ID angle as well as CIDP to my new neuro.

Also, I forgot to mention constant, low-level hissing as well as intermittent ringing in my ears.
