Over 6 years of my young adult life I’ve been suffering. I just want to go back to the strong, healthy, and happy woman i once was.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve been in excruciating pain for over 6 and a half years. I used to be a varsity athlete who played basketball and soccer growing up and soccer in college. Around the age of 21 i started to get severe chest pains and body pains. They were every single day and eventually i had to quit my full time job because of the pain. I have numbness that goes into my hands and legs, legs and feet that are colder than the rest of my body, debilitating anxiety, excessive sweating from my armpits, feet, and groin area. I’m writing into the show because i need help. This “fibromyalgia” has ruined my life and my body. I’m always exhausted and my brain starts to get fuzzy. I need about 12 hours of sleep to even feel half normal. I can’t eat some days and go to bed hungry because nothing sounds appetizing. I can’t go out with my friends or do much activity because of the pain and the exhaustion. My neck and back are always hurting and feel so weak. I’ve seen multiple doctors throughout the years that tell me it’s the worst fibromyalgia they’ve seen in a young person. Please help me get back to the happy go lucky, active and strong woman i once was.
