I am a 31 year old young female, who works out, eats well and was generally in good health. Last year I recieved a CAT scan and it was discovered that I have a spleenic mass. I was referred to a Oncologist, Rhumotologist, endrocronologists. I have had CAT scans or MRI's every 3 months to keep close watch over my spleen's size. The dr. that read the CAT scan originally said it looks like it may be a hematoma but it does not have all the characteristics of a hematoma. Since last years first CAT scan I have developed two small leasons in my left lung, and in my kidney's. I have been also diagnosed with a hypothyroid, and I currently take synthroid. My blood work that I have recieved have all come backs in such a way that makes it hard for my Oncologist Dr. to give me a proper diagnoses. My Oncologist has said to me "I just can't give you a diagnoses because your blood work is not matching up like a puzzle piece enough to think it might be a type of lyphoma." My blood tests have shown an occasional low white blood count, I also have low potassuim and I currently take medication for that in short increments of time. I had a bone marrow biopsy which showed NO red blood cells so I am also taking 650 mgs of iron a day. These are my symptoms: Fatigue, daily low fevers, occasional night sweats, heart palpitations, migraines, lft side (just below my lung) dull pain, poor appietite, chest tightness, caughing. So if there is a seasonal doctor that could PLEASE PLEASE give me direction I would be so grateful. I am becoming depressed that it has been over a year, and my oncologist is now closer to finding a diagnoses then he was when he first met me!
I think I might have a little clue as to what you could or should be tested for! I am 32 and for 6 or so years no doctor could figure out what was wrong with me .. Even went to the Mayo Clinic .. I have suffered from the migraines, fatigue, coughing , pain that would radiant around my kidneys..sinus infections... kidney infections... odd numbers on any blood tests.. and even blood in my urine .. I have been doctoring with an amazing GP,Rhumotologist, and ENT ... come to find out after a simple sinus surgery that I have a really rare disease called Wegener's Granulomatosis. I am taking a lot of medication and not at 100% but do feel better most days.. I wish you the best in finding out what is going on with you ..
