I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens disease, and Amplified Pain Syndrome at age 13. My symptoms include: chronic sever pain, skin feels like its burning, chronic fatigue, IBS symptoms and skin sensitivity, problems sleeping, itching, short of breath, dispersonalization. I have been to several specialist and doctors and with no help. This has consumed my life at a time when my life was just beginning. I had to drop out of school because my symptoms are so bad. Its also hard for me to hold a job. This pass seven years, since I was 13 years old, have been so incredible difficult as these symptoms are every single day. This has caused my mind to go dark and i get depressed and also have episodes of mental breakdowns where I loose all sense of reality which is dispersonlizaition. I have tried different medications, but nothing has worked. I am struggling to hang on to hope because if this is the way my life is going to be for the rest of my life, I am scared to think of that. PLEASE HELP ME!
