ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been searching for help for years. The pain and fatigue I deal with everyday has changed who I am. I do not look forward to anything because I cannot depend on myself anymore. I have chronic neck and back pain. I also have pain in my shoulder, knee and feet. I cannot tolerate heat or cold, my temperature is 96.0 to 96.5 in the morning. I have had it drop to 92 to 95 many times using different thermometers. I have flares of neuropathy in my arms, legs and face. I have gastric issues and watch what I eat. My thumb nails have ridges and my hair is thinning. My eyebrows are thin and the outer third do not grow. I also get splinter hemorrhages. My brain is foggy. I have been clumsy dropping things and bumping into things lately. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos, Fibromyalgia, and Hla-b27 Spondyloarthropathy. I am euthroid so no meds for the Hashimotos. I have taken nsaids and dmards all gave me negative side effects. I have a Rheumatologist, Endocrinologist, and have seen a Neurologist. The Neurologist checked me for MS and did a brain mri and Evoked Pontential test. He did not do a spinal tap because none of those tests showed anything. My fatigue and pain are so bad I sit alot during the day. I have been diagnosed with several things but the temperature issue and some of the other things cannot be explained by any of my above Dr.'s. I get strong feelings of not feeling well several times a day. I have always been a very active person. It is causing me to feel down because I cannot do the things I enjoy doing anymore.
