Fever

Post by sce » Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:16 pm

I am a concerned husband writting for my wife who was in ODS between 1990 - 1991. To be very brief, over the past 13 years, my wife has been hospitalized three times with numerous tests conducted. She has bouts about every one - two years in where she has a fever +/- 100 degrees for at least a week or two and she is very fatigued the entire time (not being able to get out of the bed). I am writing this as she is on day 8 of fever/exhaustion and I'm trying to find out if there is anyone who may have the same symptoms or can guide me in the right direction for help. Thank you all for what you did for our country and thank you in advance for any help.

the fatigued can be from a number of things really...when did it 1st start? the 1st. time she remembers, i know you said for the past 13 yrs....reason why im askin, the va will...so be parpared for that. or is she seein a va doctor?, or a private one? not sayin 1 is better than the other, but if its military related, or you think its related...you'd might satand a better chance with the va, since they see alot more caes of what some doctors would call starange things....we just call it life, but we used to. guess what my point is have she see both the va an a private doc.
i stayed fatigued myself, always tired , but i got other issues going on , to numberous to go into, but i really hope she gets some answers an feels better.
