Random all over body pains that are so debilitating I can barely function.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
TMJ, painful periods, back pain, neck pain, hip pain, all over pain that is unexplained. If I try to exercise I get hurt somehow- even just walking. It's hard to be a mom with all the daily pains. I have been diagnosed with 2 DVTs within the past 3-4 months, with no cause. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and depression mixed with bipolar 2. I have mild scoliosis and have had hip problems since I was in a car accident in 2004 -when they thought I broke them. I was unable to walk for about a week and have had more problems since. TMJ increases my chases of getting a headache, or a sinus infection. I've had multiple episodes of having a headache for a week or two at a time. Most over the counter pain relievers don't work anymore. I got to a chiropractor to help relieve some of the pain and before the end of that day I'm back where I was before I went in. I'm unable to afford to go daily or weekly like I should. I can't afford to go to specialists and I'm afraid to even go to get the help I need at times because I'm afraid of the costs. I sweat when I sleep, which doesn't allow me to get a good nights sleep. I never feel rested when I wake up- no matter how long I slept for. Doctors continuously tell me that my blood work, xrays or scans are fine so they don't think to investigate further and just tell me it's my fibromyalgia acting up. I've tried physical therapy a few times with no luck. I'm seeking help because I'm not able to be the person I want to be. All I want to do when I get home from work and on weekends is sleep. Working only part time (under 30 hours a week) helps, but not enough I'm still exhausted ALL THE TIME! I'm unable to be the wife and mother I want to be. I've been wanting to get more help with these issues, but because of living paycheck to paycheck and barely being able to afford the medications needed I haven't been able to get it. Help me get back to being a happier person who can function please.
