Frustrated

  Hello my name is Bill, Well this is interesting because well I will start from the Beginning in 2001 I had a persistent cough Had numerous x-rays.
# 1  Hisstoplassnoiss
#  2  2005  not getting better well starting to get nodules and skin lesions so started to see Rheumotologist,and Neurologist. Had Brain Mri showed 2 benign  lesions and Iffy Lesion  on Left Temporal lobe aswell as abnormal white matter.

#-3 I have had numerous Brain Mri I now have lung granulomas they thought I had Brain Tumor .have underactive Thyroid also

#-4 I was diagnosed with wg/mpa I was taking methotrexate and Prednisone then all of a sudden I had 1086 blood glucose so now Diabetic 1 year later from 12% to 5%.

  5- so it has been Brain Mri -Lung cat scan

#-6 now the Brain Mri says no Tumor but encephalitis,mild parenchymal volume loss with minimal small vessel ischemic changes  I also have sleep apnea it is believed to be autoimmune disease maybe the Wegeners granulomas and mpa but what other autoimmune could it possibly be.

  I already had Rutuxin chemotherapy now  Cytaxin staets I hope I spelled them correctly.

   Thank you Bill

Hi!
I am sorry to hear that you have been going through so much. Basically you have a granulomatous disease. So all causes that result in formation of granulomas need to be ruled out. These include histoplasmosis (what you were diagnosed with first), tuberculosis, leprosy, schistosomiasis, cryptococcosis, cat-scratch disease, sarcoidosis, crohn's disease, Pneumocystis pneumonia, aspiration pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, and granuloma annulare.
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Take care!
