ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For more than 4 years I have searched for the answer. I have been told over and over again that my issues are caused by anxiety and stress. I was a happy outgoing married mom of 2 and I can barely function anymore. I do know that my issues revolve around my digestion and food sensitivities. I have also been told that I may have a candida overgrowth in my gut. I have been given prescriptions, supplements and varying opinions on a diet to follow and I am spinning out of control. I eat and try to follow recommendations but I keep losing weight and muscle. I am 5' 5" and weight about 90 lbs. I also have a spinal cord injury with paralysis on the right side. I am so thin that it hurts to sit because I have no fat on me. I have trouble staying awake during the day because I am so fatigued and I cannot stay asleep at night. I now have a constant fear of food and I am a shell of the person I used to be.
