My child has an autoimmune condition, his heart valves are damaged and his feet are swollen because the protein is leaking from the kidney. What should I do, Doc?
Doctor, I have rheumatism. When it hits, my feet are weak. Can it be totally cured? What is the treatment? And is it true that a person with rheumatism should avoid cold baths?
Doctor, I want to ask, my child is 25 years old. Since 5 years back, if he is tired, he will get a fever. And recently, when he’s sleeping, his spine is very painful. It hurts when sleeping / resting. When in activity it does not hurt. Also some time ago there was inflammation of the eye (uveitis). Do you know what caused my child’s condition? Thank you for the answer
