ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been a "medical mystery" for about 4 years. My PCP is at the point of a referral to Mayo Clinic in AZ. I have been through over a dozen Dr's in the last 4 years. I was diagnosed with tendonitis around 13 years old. After my last son everything took a turn for the worst. I have even been seen by a psychologist and checked out fine with already known ADHD and OCD tendencies. I am drowning in medical bills and have quit my job as a AAMA CMA due to needing a break from exposure due to catching all that came through.
I have tried so may different medications I cannot count and feel like a lost cause. I have given up on Drs in our valley and am just praying for someone to help me so I may return to the super mom and wife that I am. I feel trapped in this body due to limitations, when I am not even 30 yet. I have a fear that I am going to have to deteriorate before they take me seriously enough to help me.
Rest of symptoms include:
Night sweats, unexplained tachycardia, poly-arthritis, electrolyte imbalance, lump (possible lymphnode) top right of C-spine, PCOS, chronic itching, Hashimotos w/ goiter with accuried hypothyroid (total thyroidectomy which was a stab in the dark to try to "fix" my symptoms), spontaneous allergic reactions post thyroidectomy, frail nails, lose of control of hands after long use, poor circulation (hands, lips, and feet turn blue), tremor, and sheer exhaustion. The daily pain I have learned to live with but when I mom hard or "over do it" I am down physically for days at a time.
Please help me, I am losing this battle rapidly and not due to lack of fight.
