ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I had a stroke in 2015. Since then, a couple of times a month I have flu-like symptoms that keep me from being able to function in my every day life. It feels like someone hit me in the back of the head and I'm vomiting and can't keep anything at all down for about 48 hours. Sometimes I can push through it but when I can't I'm forced to go to the ER to get IV fluids. Doctors are as helpful as they can be but the can't figure out what causes this. I'm so frustrated with being so sick for no apparent reason. Since the stroke I also have hypersensitive nerve disorder and the entire right side of my body is in constant pain. Doctors want me to take pain meds but I don't want to be dependent on pills for the rest of my life.
