    I have pics on my cell phone, but I wonder if he would diagnose off of that since it really could be a picture of anyone's foot, not necessarily mine. But I can't imagine anyone but a Munchhausen patient trying to pass off someone else's rash as their own.

    I had a CT which showed an enormous amount of inflammation through my digestive system... the blood tests done at the same time? ZERO INFLAMMATION! That wasn't possible, because the CT SHOWED inflammation. What ever that means, I dont know. But what seems terribly clear to me, is that blood tests do not always accurately indicate inflammation. I dont know how that works, Im not a doctor, but doctors should know how that works... yet they dont seem to. Yet occasionally when I feel fit as a fiddle... inflammation markers are up. Maybe doctors arent as smart as they think. It makes it hell for us though, because the doctors seem to rely on blood tests way too much.

    it appears that blood tests may not be as accurate as doctors like to believe.
    i have been watching comments on here that show tooooooo frequently that blood tests lag behind our actual condition.
