Here is the whole story. I have had sinus allergies and mild asthma my entire life. I have gone through 5 sinus surgeries. I have been tested by multiple allergist who said all test come up negative, diagnosis is nonallergic rhianitis. About 5 years ago my dentist notice white lesions on my gums. I saw a specialist and he said it was not cancer but a autoimmune disease. It is mostly there all the time ,but it seems like if I get a bad cold it flares up. 3 years ago I started to lose hearing in right ear along with some dizzyness and ringing. My ENT put me on 50 mg. of prednisone for two weeks. Things got worse and was making me loose weight and not helping the problem. He then reduced the dosage to 30 mgs. for three more weeks. This didn’t help either. I then went to UT Southwestern where I was given 10 mgs. of decodron shot directly through my ear drum once a week. Within a month I was cured. The doctor thought it was a virus.
I started to notice a lack of energy, so I got my adrenal glands tested. It showed I had secondary adrenal insufficiency. It took close to a year, but an endocrinologist got them back and working. I noticed while on this long tapper of prednisone that at 7.5 mgs. I felt great. I have since had my adrenal glands test and the test come up normal.
I have also had L5 lamentomy, got bit by a neighbors dog ,had arm infected, ended up. in hospital 3 days for around the clock antibiotics. I then had rotator cuff surgery due to dog bit.
I have diverticulitis at this time an on Levanquin and flaghl. All my joints ache and I am fatigued all the time. If I am out in the sun I get tired pretty quickly which last the entire day.
No rash but burn easily.
Did I mention I have Hasimotes disease
(Autoimmune panel):Showed borderline positive ANA (nonspecific autoimmune marker),panel results is in moderate positive for lupus range although all lupus specific markers are negative.
Celiac panel negative
Did I tell you I worked on the Fire Dept. for 28 years as a captain. A friend of mine use to work for the military thought I might have PTSD syndrome. I thought she was nuts, but it turns out police and fire are subject to it.
That’s all folks
Thanks for all your thoughts
