I live alone & have been undergoing medical testing for the past 2 months. Recently went on 2 week vacation to east coast & felt better.
Symptoms include: weight loss, dysphagia, allergies to entire "southwest" panel including dust, constant rhinitis, etc. It is not on my bucket list to die, but I am SCARED. Bx scheduled in 4 days.
Is there a doctor in the house who can provide detailed information regarding granuloma?
Is there any possiblity, that I may have Wegener's Granulomatosis?
