ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am a 27 year old female. I have been having many medical issues since I was young. I have had endless testing and no answers. I deal with chronic pain and fatigue. I’m in severe pain everyday. I have bouts of intermittent vomiting and have diarrhea at least 10 times a day. I have kidney pain, and depleted kidney function. I have bruises and bone pain. I have been told I have at least 10 auto immune disorders but no one has done further research. I involuntarily vomit at random and often times it’s stomach acid because everything I put in my body comes out as quick as possible. It comes out as vomit, bile or diarrhea. I have been tested and told that I have an enzyme that rapidly breaks down any medicine/antibiotic/supplement I take. I cannot and do not have the ability to receive the benefits of medications such as my omeprazole because of the rapid breakdown. So often times, I need to take double or triple of the recommended dose to get any relief. However, the relief is short lived and I’m back to feeling like I never took anything in minutes. My circumstances cause me to not want to have kids for fear I’ll pass whatever I have down to them and they’ll be miserable. I can barely get out of bed in the morning because my body makes me feel like my organs are shutting down. I have had intestinal parasites more than once in my 27 years. I have had migraines since I was about 5 or 6 years old and have only had 1 doctor order an MRI. I have seen specialist after specialist and without testing, they tell me my symptoms must be spinal cord related or brain related. They’ve stated I may have brain swelling or a tumor somewhere that has presented me with these symptoms. I feel like a prisoner in my own body. I am in pain constantly and no one understands. I do my best to function each day and not let my illnesses/pain keep me down. But, it’s causing my depression and anxiety to become worse. I’ve been dealing with mystery illnesses for at least 10 years now with new developing signs and symptoms. I desperately need testing so I can get answers. I feel so limited and heartbroken because I feel alone in my journey. I just want to find answers or find someone who will take on my case and take me seriously. I’m so tired of being exhausted physically and mentally everyday. I’ve seen over 15 different doctors since 2015 or so because I gave up hope that I’d ever get help. I had open heart surgery when I was 10 months old. Since then, I do have chest pain, tightening, arrhythmia and intermittent tachycardia. Everyone tells me I have all of these different medical issues yet no one will do the necessary testing to give me a diagnosis/treatment plan to reduce my exposure to symptoms. Please help. There is no distance I won’t go if it gives me a chance to have my case taken seriously.
