5 years of symptoms all related to GI and Neurological. Tired of being told to “accept this as my new normal” without a diagnosis .
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
5 years ago I woke up one day sick. It started off with extreme weakness, body pain, and some swollen lymph nodes. I tested positive for mono (no sore throat no fever) and was told “give it a few months.” 5 years later I’m still sick. All my symptoms wrap around GI and Neurological issues. I have a list of symptoms I deal with, they seem to take turns but it’s always the same list of symptoms. Some symptoms include but are not limited to: GI: Upper stomach bloating, Upper stomach pain, Constipation, some lower stomach pain (mainly upper), stomach ulcers (not H Pylori related), gastritis. Honestly ever 1-2 weeks it feels like my gut just stops working and I begin to swell. NEUROLOGICAL: Sunburn sensation in skin and mouth (no sunburn), tingling like there are bugs crawling in my skin, headaches (diagnoses with pseudotumor cerebri) , uncontrollable and inappropriate goosebumps, pseudobulbar affect (I’ll start crying uncontrollable when I laugh too hard.), brain fog, dizziness, balanace issues.
