I've been attacked by a very rare and curious condition of the thyroid, and I've been battling with this illness for 33 days. It has attacked my heart, stomach, lungs, eyes, neck, and my right hand and foot are already turning numb, my mouth is full of blood blisters, and blue veins have been bulging out all over my body from the lack of oxygen.
Doctors are either unwilling to take on the case, or they dismiss it because they say they haven't heard of it.
I've been running around getting medical check-ups and running up a hefty amount in medical bills. This is very hard for me as I'm a freelancer, my income is already badly affected during this pandemic of covid-19, and now I haven't been able to work for two months due to this illness. I have no income now and my savings are dwindling rapidly.
I'm watching my body getting destroyed further and further in front of my eyes, because no medical help can be administered unless a proper diagnosis can be made.
However, the diagnosis needs a procedure called Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology. It costs thousands of dollars to do it at a private clinic, which I can no longer afford. Yet at public hospitals, you have to wait for a possible slot, and my inquiries have gone unanswered.
I don't know how long I can wait. My body is so sick now, with worse symptoms flaring up daily. I'm not sure I can pull through much longer.
I'm at my wits' end and I don't know how I can receive help.
Please pray that I can have a way to do the necessary medical procedure soon, and get a diagnosis asap, before my heart collapses.
