ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I live in the Northeast and I have had an undiagnosed condition for approximately 12 years with elevations in CK, Lipase, Amylase and a sedimentation of 1-4. I have been evaluated by GI, Infectious Disease, Rheumatology/Immunology, Neurology, and Dermatology. I've been evaluated for Panniculitis, Mastocytosis, Calcium Channel Myopathy, Cellulitis, Connective Tissue and Metabolic diseases, as well as various forms of muscular dystrophy to name a few. I have hundreds of what have been described as small adipose nodules under my skin throughout my body. I have constant pain in my arms and legs that is increased by physical activity and I also have pain in the left side of my rib cage. My CK muscle enzymes are always mildly elevated and my lipase and amylase are also constantly mildly elevated. The pancreas has been ruled out by MRI and ERCP. Muscle biopsies have ruled out any muscle disease.
