Hi everyone! Fused from occiput to c3 here. I have flue like symptoms that just won't go away and been like that for a good year and a half. Lately, these symptoms are accompanied by headaches and a stiffer neck as if it is even possible. Also been having shoulder and arm pain. Anyone else ever had anything like this? I have an appointment with my GP on the 18th.

Thanks for any input on this!

    Finally I was so sick of being sick I went to my PCP and told him either put me in the hospital and figure out what is wrong or Im not leaving this office. He scheduled a bone scan and ended up being a spine infection. Some of the symptoms were weight loss, night sweats and feeling like I had the flu all the time. In the beginning my blood test came back normal but as I was told by my infectious disease Dr 50% of blood test will come back normal. So you cant rely on blood test alone for a bone infection.
