I have multiple medical issues and I'm wondering if they are connected in anyway.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I've been having medical and emotional problems for years, lets be honest my whole life. As a kid it started with constant ear infections and headaches so bad i'd be rushed to the hospital. As I got older I started having severe depression and constant anxiety that makes me feel trapped home. I can't handle being with people I've pushed away all my friends and family. I have also been diagnosed with PTSD. I have anger problems with can come from something so little and I flip so I'm now also on a mood stabilizer on top of everything else I take. I ended up drinking heavy to numb the pain and sadness (I no longer heave a drinking problem). I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue I'm always tired, I sleep maybe 3 hours a night and thats with tossing and turning and taking 3 sleeping prescription pills at night. So everyday I take a nap. I suffer from severe migraines that can last up to days ay a time. I am Pre-Diabetic. I've had skin cancer in the past. About a year ago I went to a Dr. because I was having knee pain and thought it was from a previous fracture as well as pain in my hands they said it was tendonitis leading towards carpal tunnel. They recommended Hand therapy. I went 2 time a week for 3 months only for it to get a lot worse and the physical therapist told me to find a new Dr. she believes I was misdiagnosed Then I was diagnosed with RA which sounded like a death sentence. I was having so much pain from my neck to my toes. Sometimes I'm ok and am able to function and sometimes I can't move. I recently woke up and could not lift my head off the pillow, it felt as though my neck and head weren't connected anymore. I thought I was going to be paralyzed. I am unable to work due to constant pain and an unreliable day to day feeling. I also had a severe case of MONO that went undetected for months before they finally hospitalized me right away and was told I could die. My entire insides shut down my spleen was enlarged, my liver was effected. I had a ton of other symptoms related to that. I've also gained weight. I'm wondering is there's any connection between all my diagnoses, especially the mono and RA. I'm 36 and feel like I can't live in pain for life. I'm miserable and lost in my life due to everything.
