ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am 45 and have suffered with all symptoms that is listed and have had medical treatment, procedures and more since I was a child. Over the last 4 years the symptoms have drastically gotten worse and have caused me to almost lose hope in a diagnosis as well as a cure. Many days the symptoms feel unbearable and feels as if , if i fall asleep I will die in my sleep because of the extreme weakness I feel that last hours or days that even interfere with my speach. On a daily basis I face Anatomic stomach Seizures, joint popping sounds, feet/hands burning and stinging sensation, stiffness, constant full body spasms including back spasms, knots on joints, swelling that prevents walking, limits mobility. Walking often feels like I'm walking on golf balls. I use a cane, walker, and a wheelchair on the most severe hours or days. I've had multiple diagnoses from multiple doctors but no definitive diagnosis. No brain MRI, but a spine MRI that shows abnormal narrowing of lower spine, neck disc fractures, and CT's of multiple blood clots in both lungs (12+), chronic kidney stones with ureter rupture in both kidneys with stints, gallbladder surgery, shoulder surgery, facial surgery, with tremors, numbness and I always drop items. My Speach slur at times, hands shakes like Parkinson's. Pain is felt awake and while attempting to sleep. I have Sleep apnea, PTSD, insomnia and a medication regimen that help very little. Therapy and movement increases pain. All my musles are sore always with migraines- No relief. I've seen internal, rheumatic, spine surgeon, urologist and general practice. I believe more tests are needed but I'm always told I don't need any further testing.
