ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Reflex Sympathetic Distrophy Symdrome
Cronic Regional Pain Syndrome (full body)
High Blood Pressure
Bilateral knee pain (both knees)
Rotator cuff tendinitis
Had a major kidney infection almost died was in ICU 2 weeks
Had to have my gallbladder removed after several severe attacks in ICU 1 week
DVT clot -almost died on way to hospital -8 days in ICU, 5 days were all surgery
I'm lucky if i can sleep longer than 45 mins. I usually wake up after 20 minutes in agony, constantly having to move. I am mostly stuck in bed because the pain is so severe there are days I can hardly move. I can hardly eat anymore as I have no appetite. My teeth are all broken and or missing.
Sadly I'm on SSI disability. I've lost almost everything. I have been through so many painful treatments wanting the pain to end and at the same time I want to live. I have seen 12 specialists and now with all my conditions I am on almost 20 different medications. I cant even begin to tell you how bad this is. It started in my wrist and due to knee surgeries has spread all over my body causing many more conditions and complications. I have already almost died 3 times. I'm afraid I wont make it next time. I am also now having problems with my vision.
This is general treatments I have had done. There have been many more but I dont remember them all.
