My name is Brandon Wetzel and I am 21 years old. I am a recent patient at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida. I have Antiphospholipid Syndrome, a muscle disease, and Epilepsy. I’ve had 4 Pulmonary Embolisms. The first one nearly killed me. I’ve had epilepsy since I was 15 years old. Me and my mom are at our wits end because Florida Altamonte has literally given up on me. They don’t know what to do with me. I am now suffering in both arms, superficial clots which are painful. Now that I know what they are I’ve had them on and off since I was 17/18 yrs old. All the doctors have told me, over and over and over again that they will go away. One one has been there for over a month now. The other has been over a week. Trying to make an appointment with a hemotologist QUICK!!!
