ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Since I was 16 years old I always knew something was wrong with me. I never felt good, I was always tired, didn’t have interest in things. Whatever it is, it’s been masked by depression/anxiety. I’ve been in and out of therapy. On and off medications. But nothing has changed. I feel like every time I go to my primary care I am being diagnosed with something too. First it was depression/anxiety due to a traumatic childhood. Than I am diagnosed with being lactose intolerant, constant/chronic pain in knees/legs. As I got older it was like the conditions got worse. I have issues with heartburn, IBS, hemmorriods. Urinary problems. I’ve had plenty of UTIs for no reason. I’ve been diagnosed with herpies and I have no idea how I got them, they just came out one day. My body is in a constant state of being swollen and sore. My joints hurt. My limbs feel heavy, my head feels heavy. I’ve head surgeries on my hand for carpole tunnel issues. I’ve been told my thyroid is swollen but nothing has been done for it. I see a PCP, a rheumatologist, a therapist, an an eye doctor. I am also on track to seen medication specialist. I’ve been committed to a mental home once for about a week. I’ve been diagnosed with PTSD due to abuse. I am on 7 different medications I take daily. I am an active medical marijuana user. I’ve tried everything to just feel better, and nothing has changed. Being in constant pain and feeling so heavy had become completely normal for me. There are SO many issues going on me, I have to do a check of my body every single day to make sure I am alright. From head to toe I have SOMETHING wrong. I truly believe I have a tumor(s) or cancer.
