It Began with a Toe

Once the pain in her toe spread to her fingers and knee, Mrs Gilligan turned to Medix for help. The case manager guided her to the best specialists in London, where a simple solution was found

Without any serious trauma or injury Anne Gilligan, who lives with her family in Thailand, began experiencing ongoing pain in her toe. Gradually, additional sites of pain were added, including 2 of her fingers and her right knee. The pain would come and go, so for a good while no serious steps were taken to investigate or treat the symptoms.
 
Eventually the pain became bothersome enough for Mrs Gilligan to turn to a local Thai Rheumatologist who referred her for a range of tests and imaging to investigate the source of the pain. X-Rays, an MRI and blood tests were all carried out and reviewed. The imaging showed clear inflammation and apparent wasting of the bone in her foot. Unfortunately, the blood results were clear for any signs of infection leaving a question mark surrounding the cause behind the symptoms and findings. 
 
While discussing the developments with her insurance agent, the option of Medix Case Management was raised. Interested in shedding more light on her situation, Mrs Gilligan spoke to Medix and initiated service. 
 
The first order of business was retrieving all the medical documents and sending them for review by a Medix Infectious Disease specialist. This was carried out quickly, with the specialist referring Mrs Gilligan for a number of additional tests as well as recommending a course of antibiotics. It was decided that after this course of treatment was completed, and the results of additional tests were available, there would be enough information to make an educated decision regarding the management of Mrs Gilligan's care. 
 
Following two weeks of antibiotics, no real change was noted in her symptoms. Mrs Gilligan's Case Manager discussed the situation with the local treating physician. Both parties agreed that due to the complexity of the case, an in person multidisciplinary review was in order. This would include visiting a pathologist; rheumatologist and an orthopedic specialist abroad, as the expertise in Thailand were deemed insufficient for Mrs Gilligan's purposes. 
 
In furthering this goal, the Medix Research Department started investigating where reputable specialists in these fields could be found for subsequent consultation. Once a list of names was found in London, Medix approached the specialists in order to discuss the case with them and schedule the consultations.  
 
Once the consultations were set up, and all the information and tests were sent to the consultants by Medix, Mrs Gilligan traveled to London.
 
Over the course of three days, she visited each one of the selected specialists. By the end of the process, all three specialists were in agreement that Mrs Gilligan was suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis, a diagnosis which well explained all the sites of her pain and had been missed thus far.
 
Once the diagnosis was confirmed, prescribing a suitable treatment was relatively easy. Mrs Gilligan was prescribed a drug called Methotrexate that would alleviate the symptoms and prevent further degradation of the joint.
 
Medix stayed in touch with Mrs Gilligan following her return to Thailand, monitoring her condition until her symptoms began to resolve.
