I have been in and out of the hospital and visiting my Primary Physician for years chronically leading up to the same issues. I never really thought back to put any of my symptoms together until just recently when I became very ill. I have been diagnosed
years ago with Leuckcytosis and continuously every time I saw a doctor after doing blood testing. The WBC range is not a "Red Flag" because the result is 9.4, and my RBC is 4.33, ESR result 9. I have been diagnosed with gastritus because have stomach pains,
fatigue, bloating, and nausea numerous times. I have had numerous instances of lymphnode swelling. I have chronic migraines. At one point body felt fatigued and cold and my legs turned blue in a "giraffe" type print. When I visited the doctor they advised
me it may be anemia, however my test results came back negative and that point symptoms subsided so I did not think anything of it. Just recently things started to become worse when my face and scalp kept developing painful blisters that will come and go.
At first it was said to be exzema, then after getting worse said to be an allergic reaction and I was given prednisone. Symptoms again resided, however when off the prednisone it flared up again and also showed up a SMALL amount on my chest and tops of hands,
my face and scalp still being a lot worse. After recently going back AGAIN because this time my eye swelled up as well as my lymphnode, I had been diagnosed Pemphigus and now am going back to a dermatologist for further investigation and biopsy. My WBC is
still 9.4 and Lymphocyte level 10.8 and high Neutrophil Level 81%. My doctor seems unalarmed these counts because they are still not sufficiently abnormal, however it still makes no sense being I feel fatigued, nausious, get night sweats (so far no fever),
light sensitivity, restlessness, and migraines. I was wondering if there is any idea what is possibly going on here. I still have to biopsy my pemphigus however could there possibly be something else to it? I would like to receive some further insight! Thank

What are clinical textbooks or resources on genital
What are clinical textbooks or resources on genital disorders, specifically vestibulitis, that a physician specialist would refer to? I think I need more information about possible diagnoses than I currently have. I have has vestibulodynia for 20 years
and in treatment for 13 years. I also get re-occurring adhesions between my clitoral hood and clitoris. I manage the clitoral hood pain well enough unless smegma builds up. My unprovoked vestibular pain has gone down about 50% over the last 10 years; provoked
pain is still high and intercourse is very painful (but I do not have vaginismus). I have seen specialists in vulvar dermatology, pain management, etc., and followed unsuccessful treatment protocols. Inevitably, when a given doctor runs out of ideas, I end
up guiding my treatment (which also has not worked). I have read all the lay texts, medline research studies, and self-help online. I write a blog about research and treatments. I need to keep dialing in on what might be "wrong" and, therefore, find a possible
treatment direction other than surgery (I am concerned about complications in healing from a vestibulectomy). This is why I would like to know if there are additional ways to educate myself and find what doctors and I have missed thus far. If you have suggestions
for me, I am very open. Quick bio: 42 year old woman, type 1 vestibulitis age 24 at first sexual penetration, one sexual partner - my husband, chronic candida glabrata yeast infections age 23-29, birth control user age 17-24, ongoing clitoral hood adhesions
to clitoris, concurrently have bipolar 1, hypothyroid, HLA B-27 arthritis, allergies/mild asthma.
