I became ill 4 days ago. It started with large

I became ill 4 days ago. It started with large amounts of clear mucous, than oral thrush, next severe sore throat, yesterday sinus congestion and low grade fever. My throat improved and so did the sinus congestion and mucous. Today, I still have a low grade fever and the GI symptoms; abdominal pain and diarrhea.
My dog had a fungal infection, could I have contracted it and would the symptoms I am having be related to a fungal infection?

Hi, I ve been ill for a month and am having trouble getting a diagnosis. I m a 36 year old woman with 2 young children, am very over weight but do not suffer from any on-going conditions. A month ago I woke up in the night with a fever of about 101+ and progressed over the week to have a slight temp but my throat felt worse and worse. Not the tissue of the throat but deep in my throat and my glands. A week later a saw a doc who said it was a virus. 3 days after that I went back and was diagnosed with tonsillitus, laryngitis and pharyngitis and given 250mg PEN 4x per day for a week. My voice returned and I did feel better but my glands in my neck started really hurting, esp when I swallowed. I went back to the doc and he ordered a blood test. I tested negative for Glandular fever (Mono) but had high white blood cell count and plattelet, and some other indication of infection that I can t remember but wasn t give the results for ever a week. When I got the results I was put on PEN again and another blood test was ordered. Still negative for Gfever/Mono and white blood cell count was down to normal. Plattelet count was down but still above normal. However, all week my thigh muscles had been feeling very soar as if I d done a hard work-out even though I hadn t and on Thur my thigh muscles were so weak that I tripped and wasn t strong enough to stabelize myself and fell down. Additionally a few joints in my hands started to hurt on Thur. I went back to the doc who said it seems like a virus of some sort but we ll likely never know exactly which one and to finish my course of meds and have another blood test next week to make sure everything was back to normal. However, this morning I woke up and can hardly move my neck. Specifically my lower neck, where it meets my shoulders. The muscles are tight and painful. I don t have a rash and know it is not meningitus. Now my legs feel fine, my hand still hurts, my other hand has also started hurting and my neck is painful. I called the on call nurse who said it sounds viral or like something long-term which scares me. Can you point me in the direction is might be? Or by any chance tell me what is going on?

I am having arhoscopy of my shoulder for a full thichness rotator cuff tear and a slap tear in 2 weeks or longer if I choose too. I haven t smoked marijuana for over 20 years until about 6 months ago I started smoking for medicinal purposes to help with migraines and pain from my neck and shoulder. I only smoke about 5 days a week, just at night before bed, and usually take 1-2 hits. How long should I quit before surgery and could I have complications with such a small use?

My daughter was ill about 2 1/2 months ago with mono like symptoms. She is only 5. Her test came back that she had been exposed to the epstein barr recently but she did not have an active case on mono. When this first started i noticed her glands were inlarged. To this day..they still are. They do not bother her at all and her doctor doesnt really seem to think anything of it. I made her an appointment with an ent to be sure. Am i over reacting? Do glands stay swollen that long for no reason?
