My husband has Dermatomyositis. Diagnoses made about 1 year ago. 2 pet scans 6 months apart showed & test of sample swab being a bacteria in both lungs. Right frontal lobe at top of lung had changes & both lungs looked like salt sprinkles all over both lungs. He has appt. with a Dr. of infectious diseases in about 1 week. Could he be contagious & what is prognosis for him? He is 81 years old & exercises in our pool daily. Thank you.

My WBC is 3.35; my RBC is 3.76; my HGB is 11.6; my HCT is 35.3. The Dr. wants to run an Anemia Panel and SPE in a month. I was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis a few years ago. Is there anything I could do to enhance my blood work for this next lab. I am a competitive athlete and need all the energy I can find. Thanks for any suggestions you are able to share.

As I was sitting at work I got a fluttering/vibration feeling in the back of my head and felt like I was going to pass out. I also felt like I saw stars. I am alittle shaky, however, I have eaten lunch today and don't have any other medical conditions other then a mixed connective tissue disease. Is this something to be concerned about?

I have Ehler-Danlos (hybermobile) type and now have an extremely high CRP rat 34.4 (I believe anything over 7 is a concern). I've had 4 shoulder replacements. My orthopedic surgeon aspirated some fluid from the joint/prosthesis and has ruled out an infection there. Now my familiy doctor doesn't seem concerned at all with a 34.4 CRP reading but I am! I am 53 years old and have a lot of other symptoms as well, but my main concern right now is that my extremely high CRP may indicate something that should be treated right away - like cancer or lupus. There have been no tests ordered and I feel very confused about how much I should push my doctor to investigate this. By the way, my CRP has been elevated from a shoulder infection prior -- then it was only at 12 -- now at 34.4 that seems very frightening to me. My high sensitivity CRP test put me in the "average" range for heart disease. Do you have any suggestions for me?
