My name is Sara and I’m 19 years old. Since I was 16 years old I haven’t been able to eat any solid foods and rely on tube feeds.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve been diagnosed with CRPS when I was 13, POTS, Dysautonomia, MALS, chronic migraines, severe chronic constipation and intestinal dysmotility. When I was 16 years old I started to not be able to keep solid foods down. Anytime I ate anything that wasn’t liquid I vomited and my symptoms like pain and nausea would get worse. Over the years my gi symptoms got worse to wear I can’t even keep down water so I completely rely 100% on J tube feeds for nutrition and hydration. Due to my gi symptoms in just the past 7 months alone I’ve spent 130 in the hospital not including the past few years and currently in the hospital now on TPN and trying to get back on j tube feeds. They can’t explain what’s causing this and why I can’t tolerate anything by mouth.
