My friend got sick about three weeks ago. She starts coughing up blood, the er prescribes her antibiotics. She then gets a headache so bad that she's puking on herself and can't function. The er thinks its meningitis but the spinal tap comes back negative so they give her antibiotics again and steroids. She's still in so much pain that she went to the er on Christmas at a different hospital. Same thing and they release her. She still can't function and its getting worse so she went to a third hospital two days ago. They did an MRI and a ct scan and its all negative for anything and she thinks they're going to release her again today.
Does anyone have any idea what it could be? She was at dans parents house for Christmas because we've all been taking turns watching her kids and I have NEVER seen a human in so much pain. It was shocking. I'm REALLY worried about her and I just want them to figure it out so she can get better :(

Sarcoidosis?  it's most likely a virus, if all the tests came up negative

I dont know hun. My first thought would have been a tumor. Maybe she needs a PET scan done. They are the best scans for finding things like that. Im so sorry and I hope they figure it out quickly.

Have they tested for parasites? That would be my concern if they find no viruses and especially after three weeks considering most viruses are over and done after two weeks.

Why does she kep going to the ER, she obviously needs to make an appointment with a regular doctor who will do a battery of tests on her.

Was she checked for Tuberculosis? I really have no idea. Whatever it is, they need to start taking it more seriously. I hope she gets better.
