I have been diagnosed with hidradenitis, and have been dealing with it for 15 years (since the age of 17). At age 19 I had surgery in my right armpit to remove glands but it didnt help. I would say that the severity or extent of the hidradenitis is very bad, with alot of scarring and a pretty thick scar behind my neck. For the past two years I have had dizzy spells and fatigue. , I saw a neurologist. The doctor performed an EEG which discovered these spells were seizures I recently did some research and discovered there is a possibility that hidrodenitis can cause cancer, and it could affect the nervous system. i have a scar there as well as what seems to be another scar tissue behind the base of my scull. I had an MRI which showed no abnormalities of my brain, but would a head MRI also show scar tissue on the top of the spine? Could pressure from the scar tissue on my neck cause neuro problems? Thank you so much, as I have been trying to put the peices to this puzzle together!

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
