I have had a few things happen recently and am wondering if it could be an immune system problem?

Six months ago I contracted keratitis in my eyes (both). Barring any infection, which the specialist could not find, he said it was likely an "overreaction of my immune system".

Recently, I had a severe occurance of psorasis, which I have never had before. I had exema, but nothing like this. It is on my scalp, neck ears and forehead.

My lymph nodes have been swelling (and unswelling) sporatically and in different body locations (back of the neck, below the ears and armpits).

Initial blood tests came back fine, except that I have low iron. Could there be more to this than isolated events?

  • Go get your calcium checked out for blood work. If calcium is high and oron is low then there could be cancer somewhere.
