i was so sick last night that i could not think straight. i have a rare disease called dercums disease. it causes problems with my lymph system and central nervous system. i have painful fatty tumors all over my body including my head and feet. most lie right on the nerves causing extreme pain. they swell and wreak havic wherever they are. my body temps go up and down within mins. and so do my pulse rates, and blood pressure. when i get the least little infection it does me in. right now i am on difflucin and antibiotics for sinus infection, eye infection, yeast infection and bladder infection. i'm also on many other meds for the dercums disease. the thing is i get along pretty good considering all this until i get these episodes of extreme weakness, fatigue, dizziness, garbled speech and blurred, wavy??, vision. it makes me so i cannot wake up and it scares the heck out of my husband. what might be the problem?? why am i getting an eye doc instead of a general doc or internist??
