ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am 38, have been through bunion surgery that led to DVT)/PE in 2001, With diagnosis of Factor V Leiden, I am to take Coumadin for life. I wear 30-40mmHg stocking on leg that was destroyed by clots. I was told there is no way to improve circulation in my leg and I would be destined to wear stockings for life. 18 yrs later I'm looking for a way to get more freedom from leg pain/aches. I also have another issue related my my gut. Last year I was diagnosed with Gluten Intolerance, only my symptoms have not let up, even though I am gluten free. I'm at the point that I am afraid to eat. Anything I consume has the possibility of sending me directly to the bathroom. Too many times I have not made it. I am a teacher, my students need me present in the classroom. Anything that anyone else has experienced that could help me is much appreciated.
