My daughter has had a long-standing autoimmune disorder of unknown origin. It first presented with itching, hives, then anaphylaxis.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Adrenal insufficiency, Raynauds syndrome, intense nerve pain in hands and arms, PTSD. My daughter first started having autoimmune symptoms about 9 years ago. They thought she was allergic to her progesterone so she had a hysterectomy. A few years ago, she started having spells that included her going into an almost catatonic state. She was rushed to the ER and testing showed she had almost no cortisol production. She was put on hydrocortisone. She has had raynauds for some time, but it has become dibilitating. The pain is so intense, she has resorted to having ketamine injections. These injections offer very short term relief. She is considering having surgery to remove the nerves. I’m hoping there is someone that can look at her history and find a solution. Her health concerns having spanned almost 10 years. One issue gets resolved and another issue appears. I am concerned there is a central issue that remains undiagnosed.
