he said that we've been targetting my b-cells, when in fact my t-cells are what need to be targeted. he thinks that my t-cells are elevated and that's what is causing the arthritis pain.. he's going to try to develop a plan to treat me and i'm going in on the 28th to find out what exactly we're going to do. the basic gist is that we're giong to lower my t-cells, which is going to make me extremely susceptible to illness, and treat the susceptibility as well.
you usually hear about t-cells being affected by HIV patients.. usually they are really low. for some reason, mine are high and causing arthritis, lupus, etc.. he's going to lower them dramatically and try to boost my immune system using other meds..
scary. very scary.
