Chronically ill since childhood. It's like my body doesn't want to be here. My mind struggles to keep going.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I believe I am a highly sensitive person, emotionally and physically.. What goes along with this, chronic illness. I have environmental allergies and food allergies. I have GERD and IBS. I have sinusitis, vertigo, double vision, TMJ, tinnitus, ear infections, anxiety and depression. My voice is hoarse and I constantly have to clear my throat. I get headaches almost daily. I have osteoarthritis, peripheral neuropathy, radicular neuropathy, degenerative disc disease, thoracic aortic aneurysm, blood clotting issues, fibromyalgia and bulging and ruptured discs. I have seen internal medicine, rheumatologists, gastroenterologists, hematologists, neurologists, chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, and regular primary doctors. I have taken many medications; antacids, antidepressants, blood thinners, anti-inflammatories, CBD, THC, muscle relaxants, herbs and vitamins. I have tried several therapies; biofeedback, physical, mental, water, acupuncture, massage, reiki, hypnotherapy, tens, chiropractic, heat, elimination diets and sound. I became permanently disabled in 2013. I know there is no cure for fibromyalgia and with it is a multitude of symptoms. I manage the best I can, with what I can afford. Is there any thing additional available?
