ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I woke up 5 years ago feeling off. I went to bed fine and then was never the same. After several weeks of no answers the ER tested me for mono and I came back positive. 1 week later I tested negative. I’ve had over 20 CT scans, MRIs, 3 spinal taps, sonograms, heart work ups, neurological work ups, GI work ups, blood work.. nothing is explaining my symptoms. Ive been to kore doctors than I can count. It’s chanhed my life, it’s changed my families life, and we’re at a point of not knowing where else to turn. Every medication we have tried I have become sensitive to and unable to take. Many are medications I’ve taken in the last and been fine with.
My symptoms have been:
muscle pain, tremors, burning sensations all over my body like I have a sunburn, crawling sensations like any are on me, tingling in body, random inappropriate goosebumps, burning in mouth, loss of saliva, IBS, stomach ulcers, gastritis, swelling in hands and feet, chest pains, heart palpitations, weakness, headaches (diagnosed with intracranial hypertension 4 years ago), double vision, burning eyes, sensitivity to medication I’ve always taken, uncontrolled crying when I’m laughing (inappropriate response), high anxiety, brain fog, saying incorrect words, balance issues, hot flashes, dizziness, and more.
