ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Rheumatoid arthritis, Sarcoidosis, psuedo tumor cerebri, degenerative disc disease, type 1 diabetes, neuropathy, chronic pain, chronic migraine, fibromyalgia, retinal vasculitis, macular degeneration, cataracts, cognitive disorder, depression and anxiety
4 spinal surgeries
1 brain surgery - developed a cognitive disorder after surgery
My inflammation is out of control - my CRP(inflammatory factor in blood) has gone up to 154 and should not be higher than 10
B/c of my Autoimmune diseases and how badly they are affecting me, I've developed type 1 diabetes (adult onset)
I'm getting infusions every 2 weeks for my inflammation & wegener disease but I'm still dealing with severe flare ups that cause severe, disabling pain.
I've been hospitalized 4 times since end of April
Remicade infusions every 4 weeks for 10yrs until I had a medical reaction to it in May 2016. My arthritis flared up in almost every joint and spine severely, my CRP went up to 154. I developed severe neuropathy in my legs. I have been suffering from this constantly for 3 years now. On prednisone, weekly chemo shots and bi-weekly infusions but we can't get it under control. It is disabling. Have ANCA factors leading to a diagnosis of Wegeners disease. Because of how out of control my Autoimmune diseases are, I've developed type 1 diabetes.
