Hi, I was very ill 8 years ago. In ICU for 3 weeks due to an adverse reaction to a painkiller (nolotil,for broken wrist). I had agranulocytosis/sepsis and various other things. Since then I suffer from arthritis (not too bad) asthma (sometimes bad)and patches of psoriasis on the scalp, nails and slight patches on the arms and legs. My question is-could the agressive prolonged medication I was given ,thankfully,in ICU have caused this? Thanks
