ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I also have insulin resistance, irritable bowel syndrome and a condition called spondylarthripathy. I've been to at leat 6 different specialist for my migraines. I've been through several for the RA. Including taking ( 31/2 hr remicaide infusions, plus narcotics etc.) I see a Retina specialist and my regular Opthamalogist. I've seen an Ortho for my bones and have had physical therapy for pain management. My drug list over the past 12 years is insane. I'm surprised that I have a liver. I stopped taking most medication because they make me sick. I've turned my life style around two years ago. I went vegan for a few months, then the vegetarian and now just lean meat but no red meat. I don't eat rice, bread, pasta, and nor do I drink soda, fruit juice or eat fruit any longer ( due to being insulin resistant ). I work out at the Y and at home. I'm in pain all day every day. From head to toe. If it's not a migraine, it's joint pain, muscle or nerve pain. It's hard being me every day and people don't understand, so I cut myself off from them. I basically live within the walls of my home, with little support. I've become depressed over the years and it's hard to fulfill anything that I desire because I'm too focused on putting on a brave face for myself and anyone who sees me. I'm tired and exhausted of this and way too young to feel so old.
