ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Various diagnosis have been NASH (non-alcoholic stetohepatis/fatty liver disease, Sjogrens Syndrome with possible Hashimoto's and IBS. I eat a very low fat and healthy diet, have low blood pressure and am very active and tried elimination diets. Nothing works. My liver enzymes stay very high and my stomach stays bloated continuously to where I look 8 months pregnant, I'm tired all the time (but can't sleep), my hair is thinning, my muscles and joints ache constantly, I have a chronic cough with clear phlegm that started about a year ago that feels like post nasal drip bit that no allergy medicine or nose spray touches, when I lay down I feel a tickle in the back of my throat and have phlegm and feel like it's hard to breathe. I continue to gain weight while eating very small amounts of food. I have read about so many things online that have these symptoms - auto immune disorder, cyrrhosis (even though I rarely drink alcohol), pulmonary edema, liver failure, congestive heart failure and many more extremely scary things. I am self employed so have no health insurance and have already paid so much in the past on scans and tests that didn't end up helping find an answer. I am desperate for help. I have a great life, great family and I want to be healthy and stay with them for as long as I can.
