I would explain as follows:

Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to an infection or inflammation.

The elevated blood pressure could be a normal reaction to the pain or fever.

Have you measured your body temperature?

I agree with your decision on starting an antibiotic, but I would recommend first consulting with your attending physician for a careful physical exam and some tests:

- a chest X ray study
- complete blood count
- PCR, ESR for inflammation
- an abdominal ultrasound
- a urine analysis
- a blood bacterial culture
- a urine bacterial culture.

Further tests be needed based on the above test results, in order to determine the type of infection and the proper treatment options.

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri

I have recently taken a close friend of mine to the Emergency Room due to shortness of breath, and a pinch on the left side (lung/chest area) it is worse when taking a deep breath. He is also experiencing night sweats very badly, to the point where the bed is drenched. He also will just be sitting and he will break out in a sweat to the point where he is just dripping sweat. he is a little overweight but the ER didnt diagnosis him they basically said it was just something that happens and sent him home with pain medication. it has now been a little over a week and he still is experiencing the pain on the left side and is worse when he takes deep breaths, and is still sweating. do you have any idea what this could be? he went to a follow up and the doctor actually told him he didnt have a clue what could be wrong. said the chest x-ray looked fine and again gave him another prescription for pain medication. i feel as if it is something more serious, but now he is being stubborn and wont go back to the ER because he thinks the doctors are just passing it off as nothing serious. he is very uncomfertable and i just want to know if you have any idea what this could be so maybe i could pass the information onto him. thank you!

I have severe, constant itdhing of the skin. Have been unable to determine the cause. Nothing has been changed in diet, laundry detergents, etc. The itching seems worse during the night, causing night sweats, dampness of undershirt. Dermatologist has given me AMMONONIUM LACTATE CREAM, 12% to use twice daily and it seems to burn when applied.

I have had a fever for the past 3 days along with a stiff neck and back, and loss of appitite. My fevers usually range between 101.5- 102.6 with the occasional 103- 103.6. Last night I had night sweats and have started to get an infrequent cough. I also have granuloma annulare and with my immune system down it has flaired up swelling one eye shut and leaving various lesions around my knuckles, feet, and face. The fever and aches are keeping me up a lot at night and herefore I am always tired. Unfortunetley I am between providers and my insurance will not kick in until the 18th so seeing a doctor would be quite expensive. I have been drinking a lot of water and occasionally taking some over the counter fever reducers. I do have a perscribtion for Amoxicillin but I am not sure if that will help me. Please any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
