I am a 36 year old female. I ve been diagnosed with Fybromyalgia some years ago. Im constantly in pain, but also feeling extremely fatigued out of the blue with a sudden onset of flu-like symptoms (soar throat , stiff achy neck , etc.). The past couple days I ve been having bouts of nausea , dizziness , feeling faint, shaky and cold feet and hands. I cannot get an answer or reason why I m going through this. My recent blood work from my rheumatologist visit shows my muscle enzymes at a little over 1,000. Still don t know what that means, if anything. PLEASE someone help.

My son has a fever of 101.5 after 250mg of acetaminophen. Before it was 101.3. Symptoms incl. fever, headache , sore neck, sore eyes in and out of light, over all aches, lethargy. No sore throat , runny nose or signs of flu like symptoms. Prone to ear infections but these symptoms do not match his normal course of ear infection. And he does not complain of earache. I m worried about meningitis . I hope I m just overreacting, but do the symptoms above seem similar to meningitis? Thanks... He is ten years old.
