I have a few different chronic illnesses/ medical conditions. Managing them has not been easy or even 90% successful. I need some help!
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’m seeking help because I don’t feel like my medical issues are controlled as well as they could be. I started having issues in 2015 & started passing out sometimes 10 times a day. I have been put on a million medications off and on but I recently found a mix that’s works okay with the help of my amazing cardiologist. I’m 19 & I have had to change my entire life since 2015, between doctors, medication, water intake, how much I leave the house, attempting to hold down a job, and just being normal. Everything is so much harder now.
I have POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), EDS (Helmer’s snails syndrome), possible MALS(Median arcuate ligament syndrome), gasteoparesis, I just got diagnosed with thyroid disease and I have to find out which one it is & we are also worried about MS.
I find it very difficult to exercise & eat right on a low budget and that’s a big part of staying healthy. I pass out a lot due to my blood flow and my heart rate. I’m very overwhelmed and down about my physical state lately. I also have PCOS & currently haven’t had a period since April, 20th, 2019. Along with everything else listed I just feel like I’m missing something? Like maybe this isn’t a ton of conditions. Maybe it’s one but we are missing it.
I just need some help.
