- CASE FILE
After a near-fatal car accident in 2002, I've gone from doctor to doctor to find out what is going on with me & the fight within my own body
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been diagnosed with interstitial cystitis, which is an inflammation of the bladder wall lining. Autonomic neuropathy is an autoimmune condition of the autonomic nervous system. It affects how I breathe, my heart rate, how I digest food, hormone levels and prevents me from sweating. I deal with essential tremors in my feet, hands, and face. I deal with hyperlordosis, along with a degenerated and a herniated disc in the lumbar spine. I have been told I have Arnold Chiari Malformation type 1, and they don't feel it is severe enough for surgery. I have experienced two brain injuries from falling down the stairs. I have difficulty maintaining balance and memory issues, along with persistent nausea, dizziness, and lightheadedness. I am just at a loss of what could be causing all of this and how to live with it. I am constantly told there is nothing that can be done for me.
