Got my blood test results back the other day...want to guess what I had????

I posted a question last week or so about this weird rash I had:

"I woke up this morning covered from my neck down in a blotchy rash. It's very red & all over especially the backs of my arms. It itches a little & the skin feels tight. I'm a little achy in my joints too. No fever & otherwise I feel fine. I took an Allegra & it didn't help at all. The only thing I ate last night was a pasta salad with red onions, Broccoli, peppers & olives from the grocery store so it must be from that I guess. No bug bites either."

So after the rash, I got massive joint pain, swelling in my wrists, hands & ankles. Every morning I woke up I had pain in a new place. Front then back or calves & thighs, arms, neck, shoulders, you name it. The pain was traveling everywhere. I still have the pain but no more rash. So I went in for blood work.

Want to guess what it is?

a) Lyme Disease
b) West Nile Virus
c) Parvovirus

I'll post the answer but see if you can guess...if you want, LOL!

  • Crafty! That's what I thought but I found out that every mammal has their own variety of Parvo.
