ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
First let me say I’m having a hard time fitting my medical conditions and symptoms above because there are so many. This is why I am contacting you. Back in 1998 I won on a cruise to Barbados and I went in the back cave. I was told that I am healed spores that caused damage to my retinas and I didn’t find that out till many years later. My loss of vision has been progressive and I woke up in March 2001 not being able to see and had pain in my left eye and temporal area. This pain has never gone away and now since I can’t read it’s turned into a migraine all the time. I also have Epstein-Barr virus which causes me to have a compromised immune system. So here’s my medical conditions: hypothyroidism, sleep apnea of both kinds, chronic pain in both knees and in my lower back and I have sciatica and I have no feeling in my right leg. I also have chronic sign you situs, depression, fibromyalgia, acid reflux, A speech disturbance that has been recent and caused me to stutter and macular scarring of both eyes. There are a few more but those are my main medical symptoms and as you can see there are a lot so I call myself the medical misfit. I would love it if someone would be able to help me just have One day without pain. I’m 54 years old and I live alone and right now I can’t read so it’s been very difficult just to get through each day. And since I am very depressed I feel as though I wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for my cat Tyler. If someone could please help me with any of my medical issues I would be so appreciative because most people have one or two of these things but I have a whole list and it’s overwhelming to just go to doctors appointments all the time and miss out on social activities time after time. And if some of the above is it spelled right I apologize but I can’t seem to fix it so just try sounding it out.
