ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My name is Megan. I was 28 years old when my entire life turn upside down. On October 28th 2017 I gave birth to my daughter but at the same time I lost everything I worked for my whole life. I was diagnosed with HIP during her pregnancy. I was already considered high risk because of my bleeding disorder. I told my doctors and anyone who would listen I felt a feeling of doom. I begged for a c section but was told no. Thankfully she was born healthy. The moment she was born would be the last moment I would “okay” I had a bilateral vertebreal dissection that wouldn’t be diagnosed for another two weeks at my blood pressure Check up. My brain remained swollen for two months. My doctors say when a brain swells it changes and becomes difficult to treat. My neurologist told me it’s a guessing game. I’ve gone through three hematologists only because they say I’m too complicated for them. Since the dissection I wake up daily with headaches. It feels like my brain is being pulled into my spine. The back of my head feels like a sledge hammer has it is. I have pulling pain in my neck that goes into my right arm. I have neuropathy now. I have pins and needles in my right arm and hand and leg. I can’t sit up for long periods of time with extreme pain. I’m having fainting spells. I am a mother to 4 with two bonus children and 2 dogs. I can’t remember anything. My memory is long. I am disabled at 30. I was a nurse. I had a life. I want to live again not just exist. Please help me.
