I hope that someone has an answer to my questions and worries. I have a friend that through the past 3 months or so has has a series of symptoms. She does not have insurance through her work and has been unable to afford a doctor's opinion. She first throught that she had pink-eye. (a red-eye, seeping, infected) that eventually went away after no medication. She has complained of a swollen, plotchy, cracked-looking tounge (on and off). She is now struggling with missed periods, and then sometimes 2 periods in the same month, and very dry looking, scaly on the outside of her ears, she claims that when she lays down at night she can feel them draining a unusual liquid. She is suppossed to be on medication for high cholestoral but can not afford it, a smoker, and around 75 pounds overweight. Please help me, I'm worried.
