Jarah was admitted to the hospital Monday, July 2, with the diagnosis of Rhabdomyolysis and Compartment Syndrome. Rhabdomyolysis is a breakdown of muscle tissue that releases a damaging protein into the blood.
Compartment Syndrome Is a painful and dangerous condition caused by pressure buildup from internal bleeding or swelling of tissues. One of the symptoms is resistance to pain medication. She has been in uncontrollable pain since.
They are still trying to manage her condition, as the blood test show the protein numbers still on the rise. She has to keep her right leg elevated at all times, which is causing extreme pain.
They are also continually monitoring her kidneys, as the protein can cause damage.
