ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My name is Matthew Cunningham I am 24 years old and for the past year I’ve been dealing with the worst pain in the world. I am seeking help at this point because since I’ve been sick my life has taken a turn for the worst and I feel I need experts opinions and insight to see if there’s anything that can be done to help me. Back in early 2018 I started to experience a lot of domino pain with constant vomiting and rapid weight loss. Back into thousand and 2018 I was over 200 pounds and today I am clocking in at 120 pounds. It wasn’t too long for the doctors to diagnose me with the worst news I can ever hear in my life which is gastroparesis. From my understanding of what gastroparesis is it’s when the nerves in your stomach no longer work well and food does not digest at a fast enough rate causing food and liquids to just sit in the persons stomach without digesting for longer periods of time causing abdominal pain vomiting and rapid weight loss. Before getting sick with gastroparesis, I am a diabetic with type two diabetes, the doctors told me that I got gastroparesis due to poor control of my type two diabetes. The biggest issue that I’ve been having with my diagnosis is that the doctors explained to me that there is no known cure for what I have. Since 2018 till now I have been in and out of the hospital almost practically every week due to my adomino pain and constant vomiting. My life has taken a turn for the worst because since being sick I’ve had to quit my job stop going to college to fully focus on my health. I’ve been dealing with depression due to my health and at this point I am willing and seeking any help that is out there for me to get my life back. I’ve already gone through surgery and tried many different medications but I am still dealing with the same problems. If there is anything chasing the cure can do to help me I would be more than appreciative for any help that can be given to me
