Profile: THEA ATKINSON
I was scanning the net for people that have been affected by white tail spider bites . I thought I was going mad . I was bitten christmas eve in my bed by boxing day my leg was 4x the normal size and red up to my groin I went to hospital and was sent home on antibotics oral ones and told it was cellulitis , but 4 days latter I was so ill and couldnt walk I went back to the hospital and was kept in , by this time an ulcer had form under a huge blister , the doctor still would not say it was a spider bite . I spent most of January in hospital on Antibotics .
Since I have been home I am unable to put my leg or foot to the floor for more then 10 minutes at a time or I am in so much pain , my foot and leg continue to swell so much I cant put on shoes therefor I have had to stop working , the bottom of my foot to my ankle is numb most of the time . I also am experiencing lots of bouts of tears and pain in other joints like my hip elbow and other leg . The ulcer has left a huge scar ( no leg modelling for me LOL) and keeps breaking down in parts . I dont know if you give me more information or put me onto other that are experiencing the same thing . I am usually a healthy person , that was working full time and was active in my life now I feel like a waste of space . please I hope you can help I am away at the moment and not on my laptop so therefore I dont have the photos my partner and I took
of the sequence of events and the leg through to ulceration I will be back to my laptop on monday so will forward photos if you are interested . To date the doctors still won't give me a diagnosis
