ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Our privet well has been contaminated, caused by years of storm sewer back-ups. Recently diagnosed conditions include osteoarthritis of the lower back and hands, vasculitis and bradycardia and extreme hot flashes caused by early onset menopause. I've had difficulty sleeping for more than four hours at a time for a decade. Diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis 28 years ago, I've had only one tumor related to the condition, but several unrelated tumors, polyps and cysts all of which have been surgically removed. I grew up in Crestwood, IL where the community well was also contaminated. Not party to any lawsuits, not taking any oral prescription medications and only one (1) topical gel for hand pain. Multiple physicians, tens of thousands of dollars for tests, and I'm told there is nothing wrong, I'm just "unfortunate" to have so many medical conditions. I've reduced sugar intake, limited bread and dairy intake, dip my hands in hot wax 2 times daily and take CBD oil to help with sleep and inflammation. I'm more pain-free than I've been for several years (maybe remission?). My husband has also developed multiple, unusual conditions such as vertigo, food sensitivities, IBS and we both suffer from occasional unintended weight loss. "I think bacterial infections caused by contaminated water are impacting people differently around the globe. These conditions, related expenses and psychological effects impact quality of life in a very negative way. YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING IF YOU DON'T HAVE YOUR HEALTH" is true!
