Customer Question
On monday I started getting...
On monday I started getting achy and noticed I had a fever but didn't feel that bad otherwise. The next night I was definately worse, I was shivering under the sheets one minute and sweating through my clothes during the night. I don't have any stomach issues, I do get a headache once in awhile, it seems like its behind my eyes but more of a nuisance and totally tolerable. Last night I didn't have any sweats but I'm still getting hot flashes and a little of a sore throat, not really sore but irritated. What has me wondering is the rash or "kind-of-rash"on my calf which consists of about 10-12 small dark red spots.....? I'm 38 and male.

Thanks for your details. Sorry for the delay I went offline after waiting for your reply. I have reviewed your case in great detail and come to the conclusion that there is a high possibility of infection or inflammation going on as indicative of your history of fever, sore throat, night sweat and rash on legs. I would like to have detail evaluation done for the possibilities of strep infection, viral cause, autoimmune disorders. I will advise these tests for your such as blood culture, complete blood count, ESR, ANA, c-reactive protein, throat swab test. I will also suggest you to have complete evaluation done by your primary care physician or visit ER, you may require antibiotics depending on the cause identified. Best wishes.

Do ACCEPT the answer if you find it useful in this way I will be rewarded for my work and time here for you. Clicking ACCEPT will not cost you anything.

Best of luck and keep in touch

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
