Hi. I am wondering, if someone could help me please.....
It started 10 years ago. Had "acne" problems. While tests, doctors realised, that I have very high levels of EO (eosinofils - one group of white blood cels). They started to do test, check.......almost everything I could go through (or everything?) . Until now, I still do not know, what is the reason.
Many times I just wanted to forget about it, but I have some symptoms, which are horrible for my daily life -
I am getting very swollen. It started once in a while only on face. Later it was also body. Now I have it more or less every 2 months (after period). I will gaind 5 - 6 kilograms and it lasts for several days. It is really horrible, as my face is huge and I feel very bad. Weak, my muscles are hard, I have flue, can´t breath properly...... :( Results of my blood test are always bad. It seems, that I have some inflamation in my body, but everything seems to by fine (after many many checks I have had done).
I am visiting hematology once a year. They said, that it is not really "their problem", as my eosinofils are "jumping". One day it´s 8%, one day 30%, than again less......Maximum was 50% and minimum never less than 6%, which is still over the limit.
I have no proven alergy, I have no parasits (even though I was treated , just in case)...
I have very often strong headaches, which are "here" for 2 or 3 days.
Please, if someone has similar problem or if someone know, what is wrong with me, please, HELP me.
I am 30 now and am bit scared. Would love to have baby, but am not sure, if it is safe for baby or me.
Thank you very much for patience and help.
