About three years ago I began getting unexplained pain and an overall feeling of being ill, like poisoned, everyday has only gotten worse.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am only 43 years old and I feel like I am dying, although I have not been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Every say I wake up to facial swelling, unbearable joint pain (especially in hands), I can barely get out of bed for the first couple of hours of the day. I hurt from head to toe. I have seen numerous specialists who have all been able to successfully treat any of my symptoms and illnesses. I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, lyme disease, goiter, Babesiosis, mycoplasma pneumoni, Anoplasmosis, chronic ebson bar virus, anemia, heart palpitations, anxiety, multiple herniated discs, unexplained vitamin deficiencies, vertigo, extreme weight loss, loss of vision, tinnitus, multiple punctuate foci deep white matter of the brain, cervical spurs, brain fog, and more I am sure. Not one single treatment has relived a symptom that I experience. I live in complete suffering every day. I am a mother, wife, and was an excellent student. I managed to finish my associate degree with high honors in Human Services but have been struggling to finish my Bachelor's degree. I had to take a medical leave of absence from my dream job of working with foster children due to the great amount of suffering I endure. It feels almost impossible to truly explain how I feel. It's a level of suffering that I never could have imagined existed with no relief in sight. It feels like a nightmare that I cant wake up from. I experience extreme joint pain, stiffness, weakness, fatigue, and ill every single day. Last as if I have been poisoned. I have lost so much weight, I look as if I have an eating disorder. I have head pressure, chest rightness, ringing in my ears, inflammation, night sweats, visual disturbances, muscle twitches, numbness and weakness in all extremities. My head even goes numb. When I awake I feel like I am awakening from sort of surgery and spend the day feeling like I have the worst hangover a person can imagine..its incredibly difficult to put into words the level of suffering. I have seen doctor after doctor. I dont know where to turn anymore. No one has truly been able to say definitively why this is all happening too me.
