Thankyou so much for your reply. So sorry to hear about your diagnosis, and hope you are doing okay. I will absolutely see if my doctor can do a biopsy when I am home.
No animals of any kind unfortunately. I have had multiple of these "mystery" infections unfortunately, including one two months ago. My C reactive protein has been incredibly high multiple times over the past few years but we never figured out why, even when I wasn't symptomatic.I will absolutely post what the doctor says, and drink lots of vitamin C.
