  1. When your medical situation is finally resolved and the article published, you should be the lead author, with the docs following. You are clearly the national expert on this highly atypical systemic response to metal fragments in the human body. I know you're not a person who likes to hog the credit, but in this puzzling and difficult case, credit is due for your thoroughness and persistence. Your story may save a lot of people like you the plague of wrongful diagnosis.
