Pain in Right Arm Leads to Diagnosis of Flesh Eating Bacteria,‭ ‬Amputation

Tamika Compton,‭ ‬25


A Georgia woman who suffered pain in her arm has been diagnosed with a flesh eating bacteria.
Tamika Compton,‭ ‬25,‭ ‬went to the hospital after experiencing arm pain and was initially diagnosed with tendinitis ‭ ‬and given a shot to numb the pain,‭ ‬FOX‭ ‬5‭ ‬reports.
After the pain persisted and her arm began to swell,‭ ‬Compton went to another hospital for a‭ ‬second opinion where she was diagnosed with a flesh eating bacteria.
WSB-TV reports that doctors and family are not certain of how the young woman came in contact with the flesh eating bacteria.
‭“‬It‭’‬s a very scary situation to understand that your sister could be losing her life,‭”‬ says Tamika‭’‬s brother Travon Compton.‭ “‬It‭’‬s a pretty good amount of her arm.‭ ‬She‭’‬ll be lucky to have any of it to be salvaged.‭”
Compton says part of his sister‭’‬s arm has already been amputated.‭ ‬He explained that his sister‭’‬s medical problems began with a small bump on her elbow.
‭“‬We‭’‬re very stressed out and it‭’‬s been a hard and emotional time all week,‭ ‬but there‭’‬s a lot of hope and a lot of prayer‭ (‬and‭) ‬positive energy from her waking up and being conscious now.‭ ‬We definitely appreciate the prayers and all the positive energy helping her out,‭”‬ Compton said.‭ “‬Saving her life is the No.1‭ ‬priority and we‭’‬re just very grateful to be alive to have the fight.‭”
He cautioned other people to take notice when they begin to feel unexpected pain in their limbs.
‭“‬Just watch what your body does and how your limbs are feeling.‭ ‬Or if you have any pain just get it checked out.‭ ‬You definitely don‭’‬t want to wait until it‭’‬s too late,‭”‬ said Compton.
Tamika has already had four surgeries in seven days.

Deuteronomy‭ ‬28:
21 The‭ ‬Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee,‭ ‬until he have consumed thee from off the land,‭ ‬whither thou goest to possess it.

22 The‭ ‬Lord shall smite thee with a consumption,‭ ‬and with a fever,‭ ‬and with an inflammation,‭ ‬and with an extreme burning,‭ ‬and with the sword,‭ ‬and with blasting,‭ ‬and with mildew‭; ‬and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.


Luke‭ ‬5:
31 And Jesus answering said unto them,‭ ‬They that are whole need not a physician‭; ‬but they that are sick.

32 I came not to call the righteous,‭ ‬but sinners to repentance.
