ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My health problem starter in the fall of 2017. My eyes are blood shot red. I look like a vampire. My eye doctor prescribed prednisone eye drops. It cleared up for a short time, and then red eyes again. The eyes are swelling, and blood shot red, and like skin growing over the eyes. Went to another eye doctor. He ordered blood work. Telling me it`s undifferentiated connective disease. Following up by another physician as autoimmune. Then told I have rheumatoid arthritis. More lab test again. Each time different result. Given prednisone in large doses along with methotrexate. Was told that the eye condition is bilateral scleritis. Fluid drains from the eyes along with eye pain. After Christmas I ended up in the ER swelling of the chest with pain. Thought I was having a heart attack. They done a CAT scan to see if organs were starting to be damaged, or I was having blood clots in my lungs. Pleurisy is what they said was the cause. Still have inflamation in my whole body. Still on hold!
