ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
When I was 4 I was severally burn, over 65% of my body. I suffered nerve damage. In my 40's I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. About 5 years later I a lump develop on my right wrist. They did a biopsy, and the determination was unknown. (I also had edema really bad in my left leg for several weeks as well as shooting pain) They could not figure it out. So I had a second biopsy where they removed the lump for do a DNA test and once again the determination was unknown. Shortly after the second surgery I developed a staph infection in my right hand. I was admitted to the hospital and had a wound vac attached to my right hand for a week. I was released, and the day after had a blood clot that settled in my lungs. When the lump was removed it did something with my auto- immune system and everything went haywire. Shooting pain everywhere, joint pain, muscle pain, nerve pain. The doctors, all 5 of them, were stymied. I have also started to develop lumps running up my right forearm.
