ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I've seen regular doctors, ER doctors, and a rheumatologist. They look at me and my tattoos and send me on my way every time. I'm 5 years clean and sober, and pain management isn't an option. 3 years ago, i started having problems after a miscarriage. Severe joint pain and swelling. Multiple referrals to physical therapists and therapists telling me they don't know what's wrong but therapy won't help. The rheumatologist said "fibromyalgia" and told me i needn't any further appointments. 2 years ago my hair started to fall out, i attributed it to Clomid, which we used to treat my anovulatory infertility to get pregnant with our son. It's still falling out as he nears his 1st birthday. I had my first seizure in 2008, but have been seizure free on only CBD and medical marijuana almost 2 years. I've had steroid shots, HIDA scans, MRI, cat scans, X-rays, blood tests, and more. I had a positive ANA test in 2017, but they NEVER could tell me what in my case, is causing the auto-nuclear-antibodies in my blood. Obviously there's something autoimmune going on, but my doctors don't care to find out despite my insurance covering my visits.
