ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
If I i can get help, iwould mean the world to me. IVE BEEN IN PAIN FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS. Ive been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but feel I may have an autoimmune or endocrine issue. I have several doctors. No one has answers for me. I have pain all day everyday. Joint and muscle pain with weakness and spasms. The muscle pain is worse following activity. I've had 20 injections in my lower spine not including the 3 epidurals for my three children during delivery. Severe fatigue, I have to do tasks in sections. Across hours across days. Memory issues. Heat intolerance as soon as the sun touches my skin I'm dripping in sweat. I sometimes get a rash on my face. I know many of these are classic fibromyalgia symptoms. However the heat intolerance is recent within the past.two years, so is the face rash. I have an enlarged thyroid all of a sudden have high ch6smd my anemia continues to be a ptoblem. I've always had horrible spine pain. Have herniations and bulges. I had a lumbar fusion in January 2019. I still have back pain, in fact I may need another surgery for stenosis. When the back pain and body pain cause a flare I end up in the E R getting steroid shots in my bottom along with an anti inflammatory shot and pain shot. My mom has rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. My health has affected my life completely. I am not working due to the pain. I cannot be active with my children. I feel like i have no joy. I need an answer. Is it MS, Lupus, RA, ??
