Hi, my name is Kate. For the past two years I have had foliculitis on my arms. It was at the point where there were scabbed over wounds for a long time. Starting about six moths ago I started to notice decreases in my health. I got sick about once every three weeks through out the year and one of these times I was hospitalized for severe vomiting. The doctors told me that that had been cause by a stomach flu that was going around at the time. About five months ago I started to notice severe ongoing pain in my lower left rib cage. I haven't been able to put a lot of pressure on my left rib cage since. Shortly after that I woke up in the middle of the night while having my first ever panic attack. A few weeks after that the pain in my left rib was very severe and there was a popping feeling and it went back to the normal persistent pain. I went to a doctor after that and he told me that I had an inflamed rib cage. After that incident I had no notable medical issues for a while, although my rib pain gradually increased, I had heart palpitations, my lymph nodes swelled, the skin on my feet started peeling off and I was very low on energy. A few days ago I stood up and suddenly was very nauseous, it also was very hard for me to breath and my left rib cage was very painful. The next morning the same thing happened again and again the next night. I went to a doctor and he diagnosed me with bronchitis and I showed him my staph and he put me on z pack. I am fairly certain that I don't have bronchitis because I didn't really have a chest cold at all. I am wondering if it does sound like I have bronchitis or if maybe my staph infection has spread. I am also wondering if I could have parasites or something else. Please let me know what you think is going on with me, I am very frustrated and it seems that every doctor I have seen is only focused on curing my immediate symptoms. I had many blood tests etc. at the hospital and they all came back ok, that was also six months ago.
