Dr Owen :

Hello

Dr Owen :

Can you tell me a few things...

Dr Owen :

What type of inflammation of the blood - what specific test is abnormal?

Dr Owen :

Where do you feel pain?

Dr Owen :

Have you been checked for any infections?

Dr Owen :

Thank you

Dr Owen :

This could be many possibilities - you could have an infection such as Lyme Disease - which should be checked.

Dr Owen :

You could have Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr Owen :

You could have any number of problems - but the first thing to do is get a Good physical exam, get some blood tests such as a CBC - complete blood count.

Dr Owen :

I would also check blood cultures (both aerobic and anaerobic cultures).

Dr Owen :

I would also check for other things such as viruses - such as CMV - cytomegalovirus or EBV- Epstein Barr Virus.

Dr Owen :

So more than likely this is not something that is serious - but you do need to get a good diagnosis so that you can be treated appropriately for this -

Dr Owen :

Because once you have a good working diagnosis - then the proper treatment will make you feel a LOT better

Dr Owen :

I hope this helps
