Hello Clareherdman,

Thanks for posting on HCM,

From your description it seems to me that you are presenting with an infection most probably of your glands (also required to rule out hormonal imbalance). Since your symptoms are unspecific and may not tell which organ is the origin of your infection, it will be wise at this point to first consult your gynobs so that you can be examined and laboratory tests such as CBC, ESR, CRP, stool exams, urinalysis, thick blood film (to search for malaria parasites or other parasites if you are in an endemic zone) etc. This aimed at ruling out all possible sources of infection before hormonal disorder could be investigated further.

Hope this helps and wish you the best
