Hi Anon

Thank you for your question and I'm so sorry your wife has been so ill. It must also be taking a heavy toll on you.

Do you think her sickness was somehow connected to her prison visit? To be sure, high, enclosed populations are apt to be a hotbed or viruses and bugs.

It does sound like RA may be a possibility. RA is an autoimmune condition that sometimes leads to other autoimmune conditions like Lupus.

What specialist is she seeing? Is she seeing an autoimmune specialist? Has she been tested for all conditions in the autoimmune family?
