I have cryoglobulinemia. Here are my symptoms: crazy immune reactions to viruses, drugs, stress, and especially the coldfor the last 18 years. It got really bad last summer after being stung with a bee. I have had an inflamed pancreas numerous times, trouble with my heart not beating right, terrible numbness and tingling in my hands in the morning, headache, weakness, joint pain, all over the last 18 years. I am usually totally fine though the three months of summer. My symptoms all return when the weather gets cold. What is the treatment?

An apherisis machine separates the elements of the blood and gives the ability to remove undesired elements, returning the rest to the patient. The idea would be to remove the cryoglobulins.
