Patient :I feel like something is not right. I am very physically tired, depressed, have hair loss my hair went from very full and strong to very thin and also very weak breaks very easily, I lose my vision upon standing, my eyesight in general is getting increasingly worse, I have a skin rash or what looks to be like red bumps on my chest and back that have been here for months and don't go away. I have recently gained 5-10lbs and am unable to drop it easily like usual, I recently started getting broken blood vessels on my chest stomach hips and leg, some of them with bruising. I also recently about a month ago broke out in a huge rash from neck to toes and was diagnosed with scabies then informed I was miss diagnosed and told I had some sort of bacterial skin infection. I was given steroid pills, steroid cream and antibiotics. The majority of the scabby rash went away but red bumps on chest and back remain. I smell things that no one else smells like alcohol and burning gas I'm unsure exactly what it is, and taste things like blood and metal. The smells and tastes have been happening for about the last two years since around the time my legs were completely covered in unexplainable bruises my dr. could not find the cause of. My blood test came back with high or low white blood cells I cannot remember but not enough for concern they said. Also at my recent dr.vistits for the skin infection I was told I had a mild fever of around 100. I feel like these are not normal symptoms for a 28 year old woman and there must be a cause.
