Curious about other reactions....

Just curious......Has anyone here had a history of cysts, giant cell reaction, any condition the doctors think is caused by an over reaction of the immune system?
Isn't LD an overproduction of collagen in reaction to something?
I am not a dr. and this is certainly way over my head to theorize, but I am wondering if there seems to be other common denominators all LD, DC, etc. suffer from?
Thanks for any imput!

I try to answer what I know from my case:

Plantar Fibromatosis Causes ??


The exact reason for plantar fibromatosis is still not known; but there are several probable causes that the majority of doctors currently believe may play a partial role in the situation.

(1) I had a Trauma on One Foot as a Trigger Event !

Any trauma or injury to the plantar fascia is believed to be the principal reason for plantar fibromatosis.
This trauma could have been caused by a puncture or perforation thru the sole of the foot or from impact
which are repetitive from undertakings such as climbing or running.

Also it is believed that tightening as well as thickening of the plantar fascia created by plantar fasciitis
could have led to tissue tears which have caused plantar fibromas to follow.

(2) Genetic Predisposition was given in my family ...s

Its well known that numerous individuals are predisposed genetically to fibrotic tissue complaints such
as plantar fibromatosis. Those from north European ancestry seem to have higher incidences of diseases
that are fibrotic, while Asians are rarely affected. Those individuals with plantar fibromatosis might also a
close relative or a parent with the condition. This condition is likewise associated with Dupuytren’s disease
or Peyronie’s disease. Between 5% - 15% of individuals with Dupuytren’s disease similarly have plantar
fibromatosis and 3% of the male population with Dupuytren’s disease will also have Peyronie’s disease.

Plantar fibromatosis may affect individuals of any age, but this is a condition which is seen more often in
middle aged individuals as well as senior citizens. As many as 25% of these age groups have plantar
fibromatosis which also will affect men 10 times more than it will effect women.

(3) I took some medications / Vitamins which may not be useful ...


Drugs which are frequently used for the treatment of hypertension belonging to the drug class identified
as beta adrenergic blocking agents or beta-blockers have known to be a reason for fibrotic tissue disorders.
Drugs which are anti-seizure for example phenytoin as well as certain supplements for instance glucosamine / chondroitin and huge doses of vitamin C supplements can also stimulate excessive collagen production.

That's only for the start ... there are other theories ....
