    Default Lindback has Adult-onset Still's disease [Article]

    http://blackoutdallas.com/2014/09/02...tills-disease/

    This was diagnosed a while ago but I wasnt aware of this so though I would share.

    ..After experiencing symptoms in 2007, just a few months before he entered the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Lindback saw doctors in order to try and solve the problem. “It took so long for them to figure it out since it’s such a rare disease,” Lindback said in an interview with the Tampa Bay Times back in 2012. After the doctors figured out the disease, Lindback was prescribed medication and has not felt any major sickness since. “It’s just part of me. Taking the meds is a daily part of my life, like brushing my teeth,” Lindback said in the same interview.

    Adult-Onset Still’s Disease is a rare inflammatory disease, affecting less than one in 100,000 people each year, and proving more common in women than men. It usually develops in people before age 45, and can be difficult to diagnose, considering its similarities to other diseases, such as Lyme disease or Crohn’s disease.

    Adult Still’s results in a few different symptoms, but the type, pattern, severity, and occurrence of these symptoms can vary depending on the affected person. Symptoms include:

    -Spiking fever, usually around 102 degrees or greater, that comes on once a day, though most go away quickly and do not require any treatment.

    -Joint pain and swelling, affecting a few joints, like wrists and ankles, and then proceeding to multiple joints. This will usually occur in the morning and last a few hours.

    -A salmon-colored rash that usually occurs with the fever and produces no itching.

    -Severe muscle ache, which may appear with the fever as well.

    -Sore throat that can prove to be severe, constant, and burning.

    -Abdominal pain, pain when taking a deep breath, swollen lymph nodes, and unexplained weight loss are also possible symptoms.

    Anders Lindback continues to take his medicine, but it is never entirely sure what is going to happen.

    Considering he’s played 6 yrs with it, and played well enough with it to get drafted I bet he’s fine. Sounds like it’s more of a nuisance than a problem.

    This has been documented before although it never made major headlines. Now that he is on the NHL bubble I wonder if this becomes more of an issue. In some ways he is in the same position as a lot of the hit/miss prospects out there. The smallest details in play can put the job in someone else's hands (Rynnas). Hopefully he is able to find success again though.

    He’s a big goalie; teams don’t give up on big goalies. Jonas Gustavvson is 6’3” and he found a job. Lindback will always be given a chance by teams. Either in the AHL or NHL. But his window to find the spot is shutting, slowly.

    This is very often the case but Lindback could also be lured back overseas.

    This would be my guess as to exactly what happens.

    Rynnas waived today?!? I guess that means Lindback starts the season as the back-up?

    wow, I genuinely thought this would have gone the other way!

    Good luck to Lindback then!
