My son is 24. He had childhood excema but for the past 8 years he has very itchy skin, hair loss in clumps, and his toes twitch constantly. He has tried a gluten free diet for the past 2 weeks (his sister is celeac) which seemed to help but his skin flairs for no apparent reason. When he was 11 he had a bone infection in his elbow and spine. He was hospitalised for a month. He received around 20 exrays in this time, including 2 MRI's. He has also had other xrays in the course of his life. Could he have some sort of toxic poisoning from xrays and if so, how do we cure it? I am desperate because he is suicidal.
