ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have retired from teaching due to the pain and fatigue I have been battling. For the past 5 years I have been suffering from debilitating pain and extreme fatigue. I have widespread body pain, chronic pelvic pain that has impacted my life for over 25 years in significant and serious ways. I have pain in my lower abdomen, rib cage, hips, and chest along with burning, stabbing pain on right side between shoulder blade and spine, pain across upper back, lower back, and in my tail bone. My vision has worsened, within the last year, I've outgrown a prescription and gone up 3 magnifications in readers. I also have pain above and between my eyes. I have dizziness and loss of balance. I have TMJ, cervical and thoracic spondylosis, acute kidney injury, and white matter hyper-intensities were seen on an MRI in 2018. I often experience numbness in my hands and feet from doing simple tasks like washing my hands or just being up on my feet for more than 10 minutes. I have pain in wrists, elbows, shoulders, and I experience migraines 1-2 times a week despite being on preventatives. I experience painful urination.
