Anyone had giant cell arteritis ?


It isn't arthritis, it's arteritis, it's different and can lead quickly to permanent blindness.

I had to have surgery on my optic artery about a year ago, now it looks like the same symptoms are back again on top of this polymyalgia.

I'm wanting to know if any of you have had it, and what happened?
Nate, a good percentage of people who have polymyalgia get this GCA too. That's why they did the artery biopsy last time I was getting symptoms.
I've got a top notch specialist, and we're watching it , I wanted to know if anyone else has had it.

Huh?......I've never even heard of that, dang it sounds serious, you better stay on top of it...........ok, this is an ad edit: I just went and found two sites with the word "arteritis",....the swelling of the interior of the blood viens in the neck, shoulder and head but easpecially in the head and more exactly the "temples" and nerve connections "IE you optic nerve" possibly inherited genetically or the result of viral or environmental conditions. Sounds almost exactly like what I am experiencing, in fact I'm going to ask my doctor about it on the 23d. some of the supposed symptoms include headaches that occur when you are young as migraines?.....this is me!.....lack of sight?.....this is me?........dang Lizzie you really need to stay on guard, we dont need you going blind.

Giant cell tumors are notorious for their tendency to recur. Rarely, a giant cell tumor may metastasize to the lung, even though it remains histologically benign.  (+ info)

How do I get rid of a granuloma on a nose piercing?


I got my nose pierced and a granuloma formed, and I have no idea how to get rid of it.
----------

You might have a condition called a "keloid". It is an exaggerated scar from skin piercing, seen often in patients of african descent, but can occur in any race. I suggest you refrain from body piercings and tattoos, and go to a dermatologist... Good luck!

What is my chance with calcified granuloma?


The heart doctor found calcified granuloma in my left lung at the base of it and in the lingula. What is it and is it harmful to me? I don't know what it is or where I got it.
Will it cause me to have trouble breathing and so forth?
----------

From all the reading and case histories I can find most of them are harmless. Make sure you continue to question your doctors in addition to any information found here.

"A granuloma is a medical condition characterized by a noncancerous inflammation in the tissue. Typically, a granuloma encompasses only a small part of the tissue. For the most part, a person with a granuloma does not experience any signs or symptoms. In fact, most granulomas are found through an x-ray that is performed for unrelated reasons. When found during an x-ray examination, the granuloma is often mistaken for cancer.

The majority of granulomas are the result of an injury to the tissue, particularly as the result of infection. In some cases, a granuloma may occur in the lungs as well. In fact, the most common cause of granuloma is a fungal infection in the lungs, which is called histoplasmosis. Other conditions associated with a granuloma formation include berylliosis, syphilis, sarcoidosis, Crohn’s disease, tuberculosis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, and Wegener’s granulomatosis.

The granuloma that forms as the result of these conditions is generally a calcified granuloma. This type of granuloma contains deposits of calcium and usually takes time to develop. Therefore, most granulomas have been present in the body for a very long time before they are identified."  (+ info)

How common is Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis in patients who have never worn contacts?


I was diagnosed with Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis a week and a half ago. Symptoms began a couple weeks before that. I have never ever worn contact lenses. I'm just wondering how common this is among non-contact-wearers?
----------

A similar condition can be seen in severe atopic conjunctivitis.
GPC is a reaction to protein deposits on foreign objects on the eye. Besides soft lenses, rigid lenses and hard lenses one can see it from prosthetic eyes ("glass eyes"-really plastic) and foreign bodies such as sutures following eye surgery.
Another possibility is you were misdiagnosed when in fact you might have an infectious conjunctivitis with a lot of lid conjunctival reaction.  (+ info)
