ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My name's Amanda I'm 25 years old. I need help figuring out what's wrong with me. I'm a mother of two kids some days it's hard for me to be the mom I want to be because of my health issues. I had surgery on my right wrist in 2006. When I was 14 I had my gallbladder removed in 2008. Ever since that surgery once a week or sometimes even twice a week I will have diarrhea. I get constipated a lot. When I was in high school I was very active I had my first child at 16. That pregnancy was good but then I got pregnant with my second child I start getting severe morning sickness I had to get hospitalized in April 2013. During the hospitalization I started getting some arm pain where the IV was at, I told the nurse so they took out the IV but my arm was feeling so numb, tingly, fingers were swollen and arm was cold. They did an ultrasound and they found out that I had a blood clot (DVT) and I also was complaining of chest pain so they did a EKG found out that I was having a mini heart attack that's what the nurses and doctors told me. I started seeing a hematologist she said I had two blood clotting disorders Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor 1 and (MTHFR) at that time I was 19. Ever since I had my daughter in 2013 my health hasn't been the same. In 2014 I was diagnosed with asthma. I found out I had a hiatal hernia. I have acid reflux (heart burns) I know what foods trigger my acid reflux. There's times were my acid reflux acts up and I take Omeprazole for it and sometimes that doesn't even help. I've had migraines/headaches ever since I was 3 from what my parents told me. I remember in elementary and middle school I would always get a lot of migraines /headaches but it stopped in high school I started getting migraines /headaches again in 2016. I get back pain I've been told I have scoliosis. I do get a lot of stomach pains and the stomach pains change here and there I get cramping, lower right side,the upper right side. I also got diagnosis with gastritis. I had a garden duct cyst removed in 2019. I had surgery on my right ankle in 2018 because injury of deltoid region, right initial encounter osteochondral defect of talus and posterior tibial dysfunction (PTTD) of right lower extremity. Ever since that surgery my right ankle has never been the same I've been to physical therapy and I still have issues with it. On my right foot my fourth toe and my little toe from all the way to the ankle is numb. If you rub it it feels like pins and needles. I've been told I have IBS. I see a rheumatologist he ordered a X-ray it showed periarticular osteopenia inflammatory arthritis. He also said I have low vitamin D I have to take Vitamin D supplements. My hands and feet are always sweaty and there also cold and I get night sweats. I want to work but every time I try to work my body just starts crashing like my body can't handle the physical activities. What I mean my when body starts crashing I'll start getting headache body pains. When I mean body pains it includes chest pain, back pain, leg pain, stomach pains. I start getting really fatigued. Where I feel like I'm pushing my body and all my body wants to do is just shut down on me. For me to get my strength back I need three to four days of recovery. So right now I'm just a stay-at-home mom but there's times where I overdo it just trying to clean up the house or do activities with my kids. I did see a counselor to make sure it's not in my mind but my doctor and the counselor said it's not in my mind I have something but they don't know what it is.
