T- cells, B- Cell testing

Hi, My immune system has been attacking my body. Skin, hair, etc., very severe over a decade of triaging. Age 47, female. In 8 days lost all my hair after the vaccine.

No Dr. seems to know how to test for advanced T- Cell, B- Cell and cytotoxic T cells- eg. CD8 or T helper cells CD4 to analyze the cell responses. I have been very sick after the vaccine and a decade ago after prednisone.
Platelets are coming back normal. They are missing the testing for ADVANCED ( as above). Bone marrow biopsy is to painful. Had 6 already. The keep doing basic testing. Do I need a DNA test? Clearly autoimmune, no rocket science but the investigation needs to go much deeper medically into the science as to which B and T cells or ???? Help Please- Rheumatology says there is nothing. Endo- clear, Hematology- clear

They can look at your PBMC's with a mass cytometer. PBMC's can be harvested/extracted from whole blood. Do you know if you've been exposed to molds or water damaged buildings?

Hello and welcome to the forum. Thanks for your question but am sure you are frustrated.  Your Rheumatologist won't test your T cells and b cells?  Can I make a suggestion that you see an immunologist? https://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/what-is-an-immunologist  Perhaps you would have better luck there.  Here is some basic information for our readers. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/autoimmune-disease-why-is-my-immune-system-attacking-itself  Can you share with us what this looks like for you?

Thanks for the response, I have video and timelines. Plus this happened about 8 years ago after a prednisone toxicity. It looks like DRES Syndrome. My skin is clear now after my own treatments. However because the vaccine caused the immune response it means, as far as I know there is a disconnect in the body attacking the tissue. Canada just seems so far behind, Mayo did not give nay suggestion as to what to test for. IT takes 6 months to see IMMUNOLOGY.
