ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I've had multiple issues over the years. These thoughts are a bit scattered, but I wanted to try to include everything I've been dealing with. Adult asthma, ovarian cancer, ruptured disc in lower back, gout in right toe and knee, geographic tongue, severe TMJ, headaches, epiglottitis, start of bursitis, start of degenerative arthritis, the list goes on and this is all within the past 12 years. But over the last few years I started to experience severe nausea and within the last year, lost 30 lbs. Its confirmed I have gastroparesis, but they dont know why. I've also been experiencing severe arm/shoulder pain, as well as stiffness and severe pain in my legs, at times making it difficult to walk. I've been struggling with balance issues at times and have literally collapsed when standing up too quickly. I also get a aching pain between my shoulder blades if I walk too long or try to fix my posture. I've experienced constipation and irregular BMs for years. It wasnt unusual for me to go over a week without going. Combined with the gastroparesis they've put me on Linzess. They said the nausea was due to the constipation, and was better for about a month or 2 after I started Linzess, but now it's back. The pain in my legs wakes me at night and has been going on for at least a year, and getting worse. I wake frequently with what can only be described as anxiety attacks. I just cant stay in bed once it starts and I have to move. It's like restless leg syndrome throughout my entire body. I'm so tired all the time I can hardly function. On a trip to the cities, which is about an hour and a half drive, I had to pull over and have my son drive so I could sleep. My husband says trying to wake me at times is like watching me come out of anasticia. I am incredibly forgetful at work regularly, forgetting things i use daily. I am continually mistyping. I've also had sensitive skin where I've had to turn shirts inside out because the seams itched so bad. I dont know what to do anymore. This cannot be normal.
