From this study (2 months ago):
I have some type of autoimmune disorder. looks like lupus but not sure. lesion on my brain located on my Thalmus looks like low grade tumor or MS. I have sick sinus syndrome and Long QT. I have a pacemaker because my heart stopped. I had half my liver removed due to giant hemangiomas. no one understands or can figure out what's wrong with me. I feel elderly at times because my bones are deteriorating and I have shrunk 2 inches this year
The first episode was one year after a hip pinning with a titanium unit. A similar, more severe rash occurred 3 years after the hip fracture. The first time it was treated with Valtrex, the second time with Keflex. Both times, it resolved in 5 days. It looks similar to Baboon Syndrome.
