ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For two years I’ve had sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my head that has only worsened and has let me in the hospital multiple times but with no answers except hemicrania continua and conversion disorder. The head pains are severe and haven’t been lower in pain than an 8 in months. They are consistent and don’t go away the only get worse for long episodes where I stutter, vomit, faint, and have temporary paralysis of my right arm and leg. I go to many specialist and doctors but nothing has helped lower the pain or symptoms. I’ve lost ability to do things I’ve loved and is hurting my family and schooling. I have almost three appointments a week and have to use a walker around school making it difficult to get to class on time. They do test but say nothing is medically wrong but the things we’ve done for mental and emotional factors haven’t changed anything.
