About 6 months ago my friend developed open-wound sores on her feet. They were extremely painful, to the point where she couldn't walk. The sores only developed on tops of her feet. She described the pain as an internal throbbing, as opposed to the "stinging" sensation you would normally find with sores. The sores would get better for a few weeks, but would always come back.
She has been to countless doctors, who usually put her on steroids and send her home. She has also been to Duke Medical Center, they too couldn't diagnose her and sent her home. She has never had a fever or any other symptoms other than the sores. She has been tested for everything, including HIV, environment bacteria infections, staff infections, and MRSA. She has also had countless body scans. She recently started antibiotics, and a week later the sores spread up her legs. She was once, again admitted to the hospital.
The doctors will preform a CAT scan today and they seem to think it may be cancer.

Has anyone ever experienced these symptoms or have any idea what this could be??
