My husband has many lesions in his lungs and has had Blastomycosis in his lungs,Now he has constant back pain,numbness in his legs and arms,dizziness,headaches,weakness,blurred vision just to name a few. He had a Myleogram done and he said that the fluid that was drawn looked brown and kind of slimy. I am just wondering what this could mean???
Unfortunately, microscopic evaluation of his spinal fluid (as well as fungal cultures of the fluid) will have to be performed to rule-out spread of Blastomycosis into the brain or/and spinal cord. In view of his neurological symptoms, a CT or MRI of the brain should also be performed.
