My friend is very sick and has been for a long time, but it seems like doctors only want to fix the symptoms not the problem so when I saw this website I thought surely someone here would know..
She has the following symptoms:
Chronic Kidney Infections
Inflammation of the Liver
Gall Stones (she had to have her gall blader removed this year)
periodic cases of blindness
Her eye whites are sometimes yellow
She is retaining water, does not sweat, and her left eye (that sometimes goes blind) sometimes does not produce tears
In the past 6 months she has gained nearly 10 pounds every month
Chronic Headaches
When she was a child doctors discovered a tumor in her ear, and she thinks it might be something in her brain.

Please she has been to countless specialists and isnt getting any answers. Please if any of these symptoms sound familiar email me back.

Thank you so much for your time

We like to joke that her body is on self distruct mode, but now that joke is getting a little too serious.

Please anyone tell me something, we're all so worried about her

  • Was it an acoustic neuroma? If so, yes, these tumors can grow back over time. Also, these tumors can grow on other parts of the body, like the liver. Has your friend been checked for neurofibromatosis (NF)? Sorry to scare you.
