I suffer fromswollen lymph nodes, joint pain, ringing in my ears is it Rheumatic Heart Disease?
I had a sore throat along with swollen lymph nodes in the week the end of march/beginning of april that lasted approximately a week. I never went to the doctor partly because of a lack of fever and it seemed tolerable. The end of April and extending into May I experienced some joint pain, never took any medication for it, as it was manageable. It wasn’t swollen, red or tender simply painful. I also experienced heart fluttering for a few seconds one morning the beginning of May. I for a few weeks in may had general achiness upon waking that generally disappeared shortly thereafter. I also had neck stiffness/kink that lasted approximately a week and half. I went to the doctor the beginning of June and had a routine physical exam with complete blood profile, urine profile and an ekg. All results came back normal. The middle of June I began having ringing in my ears. I have experienced some pain in my wrists and elbows primarily on the bones/tendon points through july/august/september. I also started to experience floaters in my vision the middle of september. I went back in to the doctor at the end of september. My physical resulted in a BP or 140/82. They ran a complete blood and urine profile, all results were normal. They also ran a rheumatoid profile – ana was negative, sedimentation rate of near 0, CRP of 2, ASO of 443. I am very concerned about Rheumatic Fever and possible Rheumatic Heart Disease. Should I be?
