Bad flu with fever, night sweats, amnesia, infected sinus and Phlegm. What is it ?

hi im a 20 yr old healthy white male currently in college. I ve been sick for the past 4-5 weeks.(I was on minocycline 8 weeks, Cefdinir 4 weeks for acne ) The first 3-4 weeks of sickness I thought I just had a bad flu with fever, night sweats , amnesia , infected sinus and Phgelm. After the 4th week my lungs continue to wheez and cough phlegm , I feel fatigued especially while at the gym doing my usual routine (lighter workout) I got light headed and feel weak, my appetite is down and I feel like I m losing weight, I have had four mouth ulcers the past week, my lymph node in armpit and neck are swollen, my right ear feels clogged with fluid. I don t know what s wrong with me I m usually a really healthy person Ive been a natural competitive bodybuilder for 6 years now, I eat healthy, sleep healthy, and get proper nutrients /hygiene/sleep etc. I fear the antibiotics have compromised my immune system and allowed me to catch something like TB, Acute Histoplasmosis, pneumonia or m worse. Ive tried doctors for 3 days none could see me. What do you think I could have and whet should I do?

As the fever has passed 3-4 weeks I believe you should get yourself investigated well. It can be a flu to start with but no flu will remain so long unless it has been secondarily infected with a bacterial infection.
Or it is very well possible that it may be tuberculosis as there is fever and night sweats with weight loss. Send your sputum for investigations or the lymph node be excised and sent for tb check.
