My daughter came down with GBS-MF variant at age 3. Since then she has had an endless amount of autoimmune related issues throughout her young life. 1. hPylor bacteria 2. Mono 3. ANA titers have been high 4. Walking Pneumonia 5. Fibromyalgia 6. more than her share of colds, ear infections and strep throat. And lastly but the most serious now, although this may not be related to autoimmune defincency; she has 2 brain tumors where she will have surgery on September 14th for the one that is operable as it has doubled in size in the last 2 months.
