This is a coincidence. My friend just told me this morning that he had a new boil. My children suffered from boils when they were young, and one doctor suggested that they were being exposed to some germs someplace that were getting into their bodies, and that was how they caused their problem. Do you live near any site - which might be environmentally unhealthy? A former dump? A dangerous company? Another suggestion is that your illness might have things in common with my elderly aunt's illness. She has had Pernicious Anemia all her life. Not very many people understand it, but I just found out the exact definition this summer. With this illness, the person's body totally REJECTS all Vitamin B12 that is in the body. So, every single month my aunt has to receive an injection of Vit. B12 - to maintain an adequate supply in her body. I wonder if you will need to do a similar thing. Have the doctors informed you which protein you are lacking?
