I'm have chronic pain, a chronic cough, & have been dxed with so many things by so many doctors. I feel no one is seeing the big picture.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Overview: Hyper-mobile Joints, tendonitis, arthritis, TMJ, blacking out & dizziness upon standing, muscle fatigue, inability to sleep, chronic fatigue, rapid weight gain, morbidly obese, malnutrition.
I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (at age 27), Asthma (age 17 as a complication of Valley Fever), PCOS (hereditary), IBS (with food triggers), Gallstones (had gallbladder removed @ 34), Kidney Stones (hereditary), Anorexia (with obesity & malnutrition comorbidities), Raynauds Syndrome, DVT (@ 39, 7 days after starting birth control), High Cholesterol, Anaphylaxis.
I take medications for the fibromyalgia, high cholesterol, migraines & allergies. I use medical marijuana to help control my pain and to help me sleep. My pain on a daily level is never lower than a 6. I've torn ligaments walking, continuously have sprained joints. I've been having migraines approximately 10-20 days a month. I can't even take a shower without being exhausted. I can't make plans, because I'm constantly having to cancel because of my pain or exhaustion. I've had to have most of my teeth pulled because they started rotting, and I'm having difficulty wearing my dentures because of pain even after multiple adjustments. I just want to be able to live again. I miss feeling human and not like a walking/crawling zombie
