ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
After surgery to replace a radial head in my elbow, I developed flu like symptoms that includes chronic pain that radiates from my thoracic area through my upper back, no relief from pain other than medication. I am unable to get a good night sleep and my body temperature is very inconsistent, usually I run cold. I have received a diagnosis of chronic lyme and went through various treatments that included antibiotics, laser, steroid injections, acupuncture, low dose immune therapy injections, intravenous antibiotics. Through 11 years of treatments, I have only experienced about a 20% decrease in symptoms. My quality of life has been dramatically impacted and I had to retire from my career as a firefighter early due to my symptoms.
