Female Age: 48 Yes, I have been tested for pretty much everything that the Doctors could think of... Many of the symptoms mimic an auto-immune condition but I have been tested and retested numerous times and every test has been negative. The only Test that came back positive was for Herpes Simplex 1 and that was after my insistence since along with the ongoing non-healing blisters and lesions I've continue to suffer from, about 2 years ago I also developed serious issues affecting my CNS and about 4 months my hands and feet broke out in severe blisters resembling what looked like targets raised, red with a white border and it was extremely painful. My guess was that it was something similar to Erythma Mutliform Major caused by the Herpes Virus. Doctors didn't agree since a swab culture did not return a positive result. However 2 months later I broke out in reg. cold sores and was put on anti-viral along with an anti-parasitic which actually started working. When they were unable to identify a specific parasite that medicine was discontinued. A few weeks ago I asked to be re-tested for the Herpes Virus to compare and once again came back positive. Unfortunately this does not explain the issues with the spider bites or what is apparently attacking me. We have had professional exterminators and have fumigated ourselves several times and can not get rid of the infestation. The infestations appears to be the only constant during the entire time that I have been ill. Doctors are stumped ad I am trying to search for answers perhaps that might require "out of the box" thinking ...which I have found to be difficult to discuss with any of the specialists I am currently seeing as they all are attenuating to fit this in a simple diagnosis which has been unsuccessful to this point. I am looking for different perspectives from the medical community. Any thoughts?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 6 months ago

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
