ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Had arterial necrosis in both hips.
Had hip decompression surgery on left hip in '07. Have been on anti- inflammatory med since.
Carpal tunnel Surgery on right wrist.
Several bouts of tendonitis and gout.
Taken Prednisone several times due to severe joint pain flare-ups.
Still cannot fully straighten my right elbow after last flare up. Have a lump on side of it.
Developed Asthma in my 30's. Along with severe sleep apnea.
Have Anemia but Iron levels are fine. So PCP sent me to Hematologist. After a bunch of blood tests all she could say was the Proteins/Enzymes in the blood that cause inflammation are running rampant but not sure why. Was sent to a Rheumatologist who did another bunch of blood tests and said it was not rheumatological.
