Been having symptoms again. Not my heart and could be another hepatic abscess. Last time it was 7 weeks of intravenous antibiotics. They don't know what causes it. Last time the sepsis almost killed me. My CRP 595. (It's an indication of inflammation) The CDC had never seen a number that high.  

My doctor and came to an understanding (I love her). She said, "you've taught me more about GI than all my other patients combined." Then she asked, "If you hear hooves, what comes to mind?"

"Horses." I said.

"Well, you're a zebra. Not quite the same. Things don't always make sense with you."

CT scheduled tomorrow morning as all my symptoms are non-specific. 

Thanks in advance.

    Funny Spk. 

    Good news. I am clean and all my tests are normal. Bad news, I still have pain.

    Ugh. I'd make some smart ass comment about being 'clean' - but pain is pain, and not knowing why is even more painful.

    To a point it's a relief. Knowing it's not my heart or a liver abscess is a big weight off my shoulders.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having these issues, but I'm glad they aren't of the serious type... prayers inbound.

    Knitepoet, I think and MRI would be needed for that. Will ask the doc on my follow up next Friday.
