They said not likely meningitis, doctor initially skeptical doing a lumbar puncture, I can move my neck and I am not vomiting, haven't been vomiting, starting to have loss of appetite, my head is swimming, I can't concentrate. If I overexert myself even a little I feel feverish, dizzy. They wanted to admit me, but I left because they turned of the monitor, stopped coming in the room, unhooked me from IV fluids, and I just sat there, they said I had streaks on chest xray indicated possible pneumonia like symptoms, I feel like I pant, and have to take deep breaths when I laid down for the CT the way I laid down made me feel extreme pressure in my head, and that's when my fever spiked they took it coming back

Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

your symptoms are best treated by your primary care doctor, not in the ER

it sounds like you have a lot of bad anxiety symptoms

bad anxiety can magnify small symptoms and make you very worried

are you on anti-anxiety treatments now?

Can bowel obstruction do this?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I sweat too, but I thought that was menopause
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 4 months ago

you should focus on eating healthier and exercising more to help your symptoms.

you don't have bowel obstruction if you are having bowel movements or passing gas or able to eat.

your symptoms are not pointing to one medical condition.
