For the past two years I have had debilitating back and joint pain. I also experience extreme fatigue and muscle weakness.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
It all started with a laparoscopy surgery I had about two years ago. I woke up from the surgery with excrutiating back pain and peeing blood. Three days later i went to the ER and found out one of my kidneys werent functioning correctly. After I had a stint put in to clear it out I started to experience what I believe is nerve pain all throughout my body. The back pain never went away, it actually got worse. Now I experience muscle weakness, bladder problems, extreme fatigue that confines me to my bed most of the time, horrible back pain, and extreme joint pain. Ive been passed around from doctor to doctor and diagnosed with: Anklyosing Spondilitis, Interstitial Cystitis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Endometriosis, POTS, and Dysautonomia. I had to drop out of grad school and stop working due to the debilitating pain. I need to know what is really going on and how to fix it before I get kicked off my parents health insurance in a few months.
