My pcp thinks I may have endocarditis. Crp is 5.152. I had influenza A at the end of March (yes I had my flu shot). I had a 102 temp that they didn’t treat because it was the flu. By the time they diagnosed the flu it had developed into an upper respiratory infection. So I had this temp for just over 2 weeks before I got antibiotics. Then on the first of July temp came back. This was a kidney infection which caused lower back muscle spasms and an erratic heart rate for about 3 weeks. Temp came back late July. A third round of antibiotics. Well yesterday temp came back yesterday. urinalysis and wbc are good. But crp is not good. Will try to get an appointment with cardiologist tomorrow. Can anyone give me some information on their experience with endocarditis? I have a grafted st Jude valve—9 yrs ago.
