“No. I’m not crazy, and I know that something is wrong with me, and I won’t stop until I find out why I’m
feeling this way.”
This is what Grammy® and Dove nominated songwriter, and recording artist, Dayna Caddell, would
say to several doctors who thought her illness was all in her head.
It began in September of 2012, on a hot, dry day in Scottsdale, Arizona while she was with her family
celebrating the birthdays of her father and brother.
“I remember the day very clear when I had my first flare up,” Dayna tells EEW Magazine. “I awoke with
a deep red dot on the side of my eye but thought nothing of it. A few weeks later, I awoke with puffy
eyes—well, beyond puffy. So bad that I could hardly see.”
This would be the first symptom of many “flare ups”—brain fog, chronic fatigue, joint pain, food
intolerances, anaphylaxis —on a long road to a diagnosis. You see, the nature of autoimmune
disease is to attack in cycles, to ‘flare.’ And this was just the beginning for Dayna Caddell.
