Here we go again. It was most likely a jellyfish or Man O war sting it happens ALL the time around here. Use some vinegar on it and call chicken Little in the morning.
I Dont know where I'm going but I damn sure know where i've been

I have seen about 5 different doctors so far, and none of them has figured out what it is. the latest word by the most recent doc at sacred heart today is that it is "exposure related" but exposure to what they do not know. I dont think it was a jelly fish because i would have felt that when it happened and the symptoms did not from until just a little over 24 hours out. And yes, i know people get stung by jellyfish all the time. I also do not believe that it is related to the oil spill now because the folks in the ER said that they have not seen others recently with the same thing, and if it was oil spill related there would almost certainly be other people affected. Going to the beach swimming and actually laying in the sand below the high tide line are the only things i can think of that has changed in my day to day life. I havent even used any cleaning supplies leading up to the symptoms. they did some blood tests and took a sample of the blisters to do some lab work but that wont be back for at least three days. Hopefully i will find out then what it is. Here is a pic of what it is like on my stomach.

I am no scientist or oil F-up engeneer so I don't know much about dispersants but I would imagine that they don't come ALL of the water but travel in blobs like the oil does. I could imagine that it may travel and hit a part of your body and you would never know it. Then travel and hit another part of your girlfriends body and she wouldn't know it till it started to effect your skin. I don't think it is an all over thing.Maybe it did just contact one part of your body. But, like I said, I don't know shit"

I'm no expert, but it doesn't look like any Jellyfish sting I've had. Looks painful. Plus if it was a jelly, I'm pretty sure you would have seen that thing in front of you. I was in the gulf Saturday and had no problems. Let us know what happens with the test results. Good luck with it. Hope it goes away soon!
