Medical Mystery: They told her it was flu, but it took years to find the truth

Her bathroom collapse two months later led to five days in the hospital. She was surprised to learn she had eosinophilic pneumonia, a form of the lung infection caused by an increase in eosinophils, a type of white blood cell. Drugs, including aspirin and other NSAIDs — nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories — can cause an increase in eosinophils for reasons that are not well understood. A pulmonologist who saw Bates in the hospital warned her that she was essentially allergic to NSAIDs and should never take them again.

Two years after her pneumonia, Bates moved to Northern California. She hoped the new climate would be better for her health.

Instead, her problems got worse.

In December 2015 Bates was referred to Feng. Her ear, nose, and throat specialist had recommended endoscopic surgery to alleviate her repeated sinus infections and remove nasal polyps. But first he wanted to ensure that Bates did not have underlying allergies, such as to tree pollen or grasses, which could compromise the effectiveness of the operation.

There are some locations like that, but only if you are willing to do a 2-3 hour drive to get there, with another 2-3 hour drive to get back.

Highway 20 (North Cascades Highway) to Winthrop is a lovely drive for example, and the drive to
