Polymyalgia rheumatica and rheumatism
Today visited me Accompanied by his daughter 63 years old woman in Sagittarius. Approximately three years ago he became ill, according to doctors polymyalgia rheumatica. It is a migratory joint and muscle pain. First, high fever, high sedimentation, and 60 / per hour. They began to have severe pain that her about six months a lot of difficult to life.
Taking a lot of antibiotics and screening for rheumatism by blood was negative. After unsuccessful treatment with antibiotics, corticosteroids were deployed. After them, there was a decline in pain and sedimentation was 20 / per hour. Difficulties but it brought to my office. They were milder muscle pain. On examination I found warmth in the right lung in the center field.
This was the cause of all the trouble. This bitterness has caused great anxiety before the celebration of the sixtieth birthday. There were also signs of mold in the lung bearing. This inflammation then heat spread to the muscles and joints of the body. When I explained to her daughter and mother my thesis causes of the trouble, my mother handed me the last medical report, which was written by chest X-ray, "retreating Signs of inflammation in his right lung." And it coincided with my explanation. But it was interesting that this X-ray findings devoted little attention. Corticosteroids cure pneumonia, whereas antibiotics yes. But it must be made deliberately under cultivation, otherwise misses.
It was not a rheumatic disease that Mrs. languished for three years. Neither polymyalgia rheumatic. It was bearing the inflammatory process in the right lung, which entered the body. In this deposit we fared very mildew, which was among others a lot inconspicious result in sputum culture-Candida. Again it devoted little attention.
Patients who come to me, you may not have your medical findings. But very often they take them. I am a doctor, so I understand them. But I do not require it. Now I was glad that it had since confirmed that a diagnosis is accurate.
The medical diagnosis was: "Rheumatic polymyalgia." Nothing about pneumonia or a fungus. I think it will be a good patient. Good diagnosis, good treatment, good result.
