Three years ago I returned home from a very physical job and my knees and ankles were very swollen and warm to touch. I could not climb my stairs. I also had inability to use my left arm for severe weakness like a stroke would cause. I could not raise my left arm. A pain specialist diagnosed thoracic outlet syndrome on scan and i had 3 years of chiro/dance/yoga/stretching and muscle stimulation therapy. I couldn't golf!!! This summer past my parotid glands blew out and I had always told dentist my jaw was very locked. Root canal could not be done until infection abated. I was on 7 different antibiotics without resolution.ANs? showed up in bloodwork and a arthritis Dr. queried SOJORS ARTHRITIS??? Lupus?? Told my body was eating itself as autoimmune disease.By Sept i had a serious lung infection coughing copious green and by oct had jaundice whereby my liver appeared infected. I took LIV 42 natural supplement and jaundice disappeared.When I traced back my dental--I had a filling done 6 moths prior to first symptom and a white bony infected lump above where root canal and previous infected tooth were. I was very ill and today have infection still seeping out behind l ear and l jaw!!! Dentist said dental infections usually are localized so felt not likely. I asked if the infection can travel to ear/nose/throat and they said a tiny hole does exist to parotid glands. I feel I have cysts all throughout my body since this infection. I lost 30 lbs and have infection in all my vocal chords still and I am a singer and it gravely affected my vocal range as to high notes.I firmly believe because the symptoms were worse on L side of body--it was dental infection gone Septic. What do you think???
