In this trying times, when you suffer from fever only one diagnosis comes to your mind i.e Covid , but we were shocked to find out that the reason behind of my husband’s fever was probably “Autoimmune Encephalitis”, rare disease, caused by an antigen-antibody reaction by the immune system to the central nervous system. Can damage the brain, cause of a variety of neuropsychiatric syndromes and cause long-term problems including memory, personality and behavioral changes, speech and language problems, swallowing etc.). Encephalitis has high incidence and mortality rates worldwide, with a reported mortality rate of 8–18.45%.
I, Moumita Saha (Spouse of Pritam kumar Saha, a housewife) informing you all that my husband has been suffering tremendously since 7th Nov 2020 with high fever along with nausea, slurring of speech, intermittent altered sensorium, restlessness, abnormal jerky movement in both the limbs & face. He was rushed to the emergency unit of “Manmohini Health Care” (located in Berhampur) and had to stay in Intensive care for few days. Since there was no significant improvement in his conditions, we had no other option but to shift him to an improved facility in Kolkata on 14th Nov 2020.
As of 17-Nov-20, we have spent ~ INR 3,30,000/- (Approx. 97K in Berhampur & the rest at Peerless, Kolkata), for his treatment including hospital stay, investigation & medication. Now, he is under medical treatment at PEERLESS hospital, Kolkata. As per doctor’s opinion, he is responding to the treatment and the further projected expenses are around INR 8.8 Lakhs.
My husband is a humble contractual employee as a part-time lecturer in a college at Murshidabad, earning less than INR 20,000/- month without any medical coverage. We have exhausted all our savings and other means of finances for his treatment and finally decided to go for crowdfunding to ensure the essential estimated expenses for this costly treatment for his survival in near future. He is the sole earning member for a family of 6. So, the wellbeing of my entire family including our little daughter (6 Years Old) depends on his recovery.
Therefore, I request everyone to please come forward and help me to save my family. Any contribution, however small it may be will be of immense help. Do contribute & share this campaign link as much as you can through social media.
