ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am a retired nurse who has always been healthy and active. I have been unable to eat solid food for over a year. Doing so causes extreme pain and diarrhea. I have lost from 140 pounds down to 86 pounds. I suffer with episodes of severe back and abdominal pain. My labs show very low sodium and low white blood cells. An extensive workup including MRI and CT scans have not led to a diagnosis. I feel like I am going to die if I don't get some answers.
