I live with constant pain in my shoulders, back, hips and feet, bouts of dizziness, anxiety and fatigue. Walking hurts. I'm just tired.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was hospitalized for mono at 17.
My body wasn't fighting. My weight went down to 82 pounds and it took months to gain my strength back. Months later I began to have severe bouts of chronic fatigue, I would be okay then without warning couldn't move. Over the years symptoms and pain would move but the last few years it's getting bad enough to change my life. I never get the same diagnosis from doctors. I have nerve damage in left arm, Raynaud's syndrome, vertigo, lower back feels like it's spasming when I walk, if I sit or stand for long I get sharp shooting pains in my lumbar area, I can't grip anything, when I get out of bed my feet hurt with very step, my arms, hands and feet tingle all the time. I also have high blood pressure now.
