ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have severe pain in my chest that causes me to have to not be able to do normal everyday activities such as work, school, and normal chores around the house. recently it has left me very drained physically it I lay down in feels as if someone has drove a knife threw my chest and then sat a stack of bricks on top of it. Not only do I have the chest pains but I also have a lot knee and ankle pain. I have had a torn meniscus and a partial meniscal removal surgery. The doctors thought for sure that was what was causing my knee pain and thought it would fix it and the swelling but it didn't. The ankle pain and swelling started in the beginning of my junior year of high school it ha gotten worse and there are times where it feels as though something is snapping in my ankle as I walk or run. I have been in a boot for a sprain because that is what they thought it was and I have had multiple braces for it. I have recently been getting really bad headaches. All of this pain has put me to the point of never wanting to move from my bed, I cry every night. I'm a senior in high school now, I'm 17 and this pain has been progressively getting worse since before my freshman year. I really don't want to be in pain for the rest of my life I want to be able to go to college and play sports.
