OK so through the magic of the internet and the power of self diagnosis... I've discovered that i have some inane and bizarre disease. Im in the process of getting health insurance so im going to deal with it the best i can and then when i do get the insurance I'm going to get it checked out. i swear im like the mecca of weird aliments! I've had an inability to swallow some foods, an allergic reaction to a high contrast dye that resulted in me having nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF), kidney stones and a stone caught in my salivary glads which caused half of my face to swell a significant amount. why can't i just be normal!!! the new disease is most likely going to require surgery and lots of recovery time. FML. prayers are appreciated! thanks for reading my medical history, sorry to be gross but i needed to vent. wish me luck, hope you all are doing well!
