ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was bitten on vacation in Haiti. The insect bite turned into what looked like a boil making it hard to even walk. Upon arrival home I was given antibiotics in a few course which cleared up the bite infection after a while. Since then my life changed... my skin has ulcers all over but mostly my arms and chest. They start as hard bumps then turn into blisters and then eventually a blood blister that breaks. Stringy type things come out of my skin and and will even be in my blood. The longer this has gone on what comes out of my skin and in my blood has gotten bigger and bigger. Now I am experiencing extreme swelling in my body. I have been on an steroid. Treat my asthma and I will look 20 lbs lighter right away- that is when I first found out I have swelling all over and not just massive weight gain. Now I am having putting edema in my feet to the point I can not be on my feet longer than a half hour-hour. The swelling does not go away even at night or when I elevate my legs all day.
I have no quality of life anymore, I have lost my job and so many relationships to important people in My life because of this.
I have been to every doctor you can think of .... only to be called crazy.... that I need mental help.... that I am doing this to myself..... or if they do take me seriously .... I just get passed along and referee out to another dr..... which takes another 3 months to get in... and it’s a vicious cycle. It’s been 2 years of this and I have lost everything including my health. I am desperate to get healthy and get my life back.
