My name is Cherise. I am 26 years old. I suffer from chronic pain in my ribs. This pain is also into my back and I have bad migraines.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve had this pain since I was 18. I had to drop out of school due to it. Each doctor I saw diagnosed it as simply an unexplained pain that dealt in their field. The pain aches in my chest, making it hard to breathe without pain. I have headaches/migraines every day. No medication has given me relief. I have vision issues in which I see spots constantly, like a static on a TV. I see auras and I have ringing ears which males hearing hard on some days. Though I’ve been told it’s fibromyalgia I’ve also been told other things. It’s gotten to the point I don’t know what it is. I don’t go a day without pain and it takes a toll on my quality of life.
