I was wondering if you guys are still quarantining? I'm vaccinated with an extra Moderna shot but I'm still afraid to leave the house. I haven't seen my friends or family in so long. It's really wearing on me. Has everyone else on here started venturing out?
I've had a low grade fever off and on for a month +. Then boom I had severe pain and foul urine. My immediate urine test came back positive for an UTI. Then I got my lab test showing the e coli. My stomach is swollen and I'm still having abdominal pain. I've been on antibiotics since Wednesday.

I am going to see an immunologist because my doc and rheumy dont know what it is and think it might be an allergy? I was wondering if anyone else has come across this? Thanks for your help!
For the past year, my inflammation markers have been off the charts. Can’t seem to get them down and now my rheumatologist is scared. Anyone else have a c reactive protein of 38. I know a normal number would be under 3, and 10 being an indicator of a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack.
