User :   sir, my name is AAAAAAA My age is 24years, Female, living in .....I have been having a low fever since 1.5months , Temp 99 to 99.6 degrees Fa. I had consulted 2 doctors and various tests viz..urine and Blood for TB , Tiphoid, Thyroid, etc were done which were all normal. Though in one of the tests the ESR was higher than normal.
The doctors could not diagnose the exact problem yet.
History:About 3 months ago I had fallen over my back in the House, had pain for about 3 days and negligeble after that, so I thought I was OK and started my regualar work.
After abt 1month I consulted the ortho-specialist when I was getting pain in the back, He said there was Wedge compression in my lower Lumbar spine. Checked through an X-ray. he said it has already set.But advised to wear a Corset for support which I did for abt 1month. Later I was advised for an MRI to check for any infection, which came absolutely normal. I had pain in back for about 2 months and is almost nil since about a weekPlease guide me a sI am absolutely distressed, as my problem is not yet diagnosed, and my regular work is getting affected.
