167 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Food Poisoning, Myalgia

  • Hepatitis A

    Chapter 1 Hepatitis Food Poisoning An Introduction to Hepatitis A Exposure to the hepatitis A virus can cause an acute infection of the liver that is typically mild and resolves[] Elevation of acute phase reactants, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and increased immunoglobulins can be seen but are non-specific. 2.[] Symptoms may include fatigue, fever, nausea, myalgia, jaundice and pruritus. Recurrence and chronic hepatitis do not usually occur.[]

  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    This is responsible for campylobacter food poisoning – the most common type of infection which occurs as a result of eating contaminated food or water.[] They may show an elevated sedimentation rate, hyponatraemia due to release of antidiuretic hormone, and mildly abnormal liver function tests .[] […] proportion of case-patients (83%) compared to controls (21%) reported an antecedent illness (OR 18.1, CI 6.9-47.5), most commonly characterized by rash, headache, fever, and myalgias[]

  • Legionnaires' Disease

    After the possibility of food poisoning had been ruled out, it became apparent that they had inhaled a bacterium that was later named after these first known victims.[] ., highly elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), and ferritin.[] Presenting clinical features were similar to those reported for community-acquired pneumonia, with headache, myalgia and diarrhoea being common.[]

  • Psoas Abscess

    The conclusive evidence of staphylococcal food poisoning is the linking of an illness with a specific food or detection of the toxin in the food sample.[] Laboratory studies showed an elevated sedimentation rate (ESR) of 55 mm/h, white cell count (WBC) 10.4 109/L and C-reactive protein (CRP) 183 mg/L.[] She presented high fever, chills, rigor, myalgia, arthralgias, nausea, vomiting, and hypotension.[]

  • Viral Hepatitis

    It performs many important jobs, including changing food into energy and cleaning alcohol and poisons from the blood.[] The most common reported side effects are pain and erythema at the injection site, transient low-grade fever, headache, malaise and myalgia.[] It changes food to energy and cleans alcohol and other poisons from your blood. Hepatitis swells the liver, stopping it from working well.[]

  • Hepatitis E

    Later, patients may experience malaise, fatigue, myalgia, anorexia, weight loss, cough, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine and light-colored stools.[]

  • Chronic Infection

    Infection may recur if it was not completely treated or if source of parasites (pets, food or water poisoning) still exists.[] We present an 80-year-old male patient who was admitted due to a 3 months history of fever, productive cough, myalgia, weight loss, headache and hearing loss.[] When patients develop symptomatic acute HCV infection, the clinical manifestations typically resemble those that occur with other types of viral hepatitis—fatigue, myalgias[]

  • Infective Endocarditis

    [41] Food poisoning: Supportive care is sufficient [26] Appropriate food handling [26] C. tetani Spores in soil, skin penetration through wounds [26] [41] Tetanus : muscle[] Laboratory findings include anemia, leukocytosis, elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate and microscopic hematuria.[] A 64-year-old woman, without previous heart disease, presented with 6 weeks of fever, myalgias, and arthralgias.[]

  • Q Fever

    Animal biteassociated infection Anisakiasis Anthrax Ascariasis Aspergillosis Babesiosis Bacillary angiomatosis Bacillus cereus food poisoning Bacterial vaginosis Bartonellosis[] Clinical symptoms were nonspecific: myalgia (94%), fever (91%), headache (80%), acute fatigue (64%), and arthralgia (55%).[] Acute Q fever is usually characterized by flu-like symptoms such as high fevers, chills, muscle pain (myalgia), and headaches. In some cases, fevers do not occur.[]

  • Vasculitis

    poisoning.[] CRP and eosinophilia Kawasaki's Disease None Elevated CRP and ESR In this table: ANA Antinuclear antibodies, CRP C-reactive protein, ESR Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate, ds[] Early inflammatory symptoms of the disease include fever, arthralgia, myalgia and pain over the involved area.[]
