ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
2000 - 19 years old - Migraines/headaches and neck pain started (felt a lump back/right side of neck). 2006 - 25 years old - after c-section, tingling/dulled sensation arms/legs. Lots of EMGs negative for pinched nerve. Inflammation everywhere - xrays of all body parts. Doctors convinced I had Lyme, but did all sorts of tests that ultimately seemed to say not Lyme. Microscopic blood in urine. Chronic diarrhea. Random abdominal pain (a few times it has been hernias). Constant hunger. Very cold hands and feet (Raynaud's). Terrible memory (short-term worse). Lymphs (absolute) high for years (no doctor has ever addressed this). Cyst on my ovary. Cyst on my thyroid. Lesions on my cervix. MRI of my neck showed cervical disc herniation in almost all levels, but wasn't eligible for surgery until 2018 (had one level fused - ACDF). No relief after surgery. All massage/physical therapists say I have insane muscle spasms. My neck pain and headaches are 24/7 @ level 8/10, for 19 years now. I've tried pain killers, antibiotics, steroids, Lyrica, Neurontin, medical marijuana, CBD oil, acupuncture, massage, PT, injections, neck surgery, and so many other things... I just want to feel somewhat normal and play with my kids! :*(
