ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
If I have strain on the right side of my upper body is when my mystery illness starts, coughing excessively also will cause the onset. I've been to over 10 doctors with that many diagnosis. The following symptoms will last from 2 to 6 weeks. The only procedure that helps alleviates the pain is acupuncture and seems to help speed up the relaxation of the muscles in my right jaw (which has extreme pain), my shoulder, neck. When this happens it makes me very tired and I sleep at least 10 hours of the day and I can still sleep all night. When I get up from bed I'm very dizzy and have to hold onto the furniture and walls to make way through my house. I can't eat due to the nausea, my vision is blurred and I can not focus on any reading or tv. When someone talks to me I have trouble understanding and it takes a minute for me to acknowledge any response. Doctors have diagnosised me with trigeminal neuralgia, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, bipolar, nervous breakdown, multiple sclerosis, ear infections, manic depression, and few more I can't remember. Some treatments I've had are bite plates from two different orthodontists, bio feedback therapy, physical therapy, tens unit, and a psychiatrist that I was taken to wanted to perform electric shock treatment. None of these have been successful and I just have this medical mystery strike me recently (started 6-16 thru 7-6-19).
