ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been dealing with RA for 20 years. Last year I was hospitalized 3 times. After being diagnosed with pneumonia. I now have lesions on my lungs and had half of one removed. Later the doctors told me they weren't sure what I had. Was it a complication of RA or just a virus. Now since biologics lower immune systems. I can't be properly treated. I've been seen by infectious disease doctors. Pulmonologists. I've gone for testing locally and UCSF. And still have no answers as to what happened to me. Meanwhile RA is literally destroying my body. I can't get proper treatment. I just really want an answer. I need to know I don't want to die or end up completely disabled. I'm already disabled and can't work.
