ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I'm looking for answers to mine, my daughters and my maternal family's health problems. I believe that this is a genetic problem. My uncles, myself and my daughters have scoliosis. My aunt and I have fibromyalgia. I have had 2 car accidents in the past 2 1/2 years that have left me disabled, unable to stand for more than 5 minutes, unable to drive and constrained to my couch due to my neck problems of disc herniation, cervical facet syndrome and radiculopathy. My oldest daughter and I have hip and knee pain. I have chondromalacia and malignant in both knees. My mom's dad's mom had 5 heart surgeries. My mom and I have had heart pain since we were 15. I fail tilt table and stress tests. The last time that I went to a doctor my oxygen level was an average of 93. I have bone spurs in both feet and in my left shoulder. I have Benign Joint Hypermobilty Syndrome which means that my soft tissue is too flexible and I am easily injured, especially in my fingers. I had Dequervaines in my left thumb in 2005 and surgery for it, but it is mostly unusable. I had a left pinky injury typing in August 2013 which left this finger completely unusable. I had a minor left ring finger injury in October 2013 that left this finger mostly usable.
