Several of our Arizona friends have been emailing and asking if this illness could possibly be Valley Fever. It truly is a possibility. Valley Fever is a fungus, entering the body by inhaling a spore in the AZ dust. I asked my Mor. doctor if he could test me for it but because the people aren't infected with it here, they don't test for it. Valley Fever mimics different illnesses, one of them being TB, and it could also lie dormant in your body until activated by illness, etc. I like this option as it is treatable through medicine, though sometimes hard to diagnose. May the Lord give my Cleveland Clinic doctor much wisdom.
