ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I haven't been able to eat anything solid in almost a month. I have lost 12 lbs in three weeks. After my most recent visit to the ER I was told my symptoms were caused by anxiety. They gave me an anti anxiety pill and sent me home. I have had my gallbladder removed in 2007 and and endoscopy and colonoscopy done in 2016. Both were clear. I need help. I have inoperable lumbar stenosis, sciatica and two bulging discs starting at the L4-L5 vertebra after breaking my tailbone in 2011. I don't know if has anything to do with what I'm dealing with now. Whatever this is only getting worse. No one seems to be able to figure this out or they just don't believe me. I am a 36 year old and single mother of two amazing teenagers. One of which is due to graduate this spring and I am so afraid I won't be able to be there for my son on one of the biggest days of his life. My kids deserve so much better then a mother who is too sick to be there for them. I am failing them everyday that I continue to remain in this condition. I have tried for so long to figure this out for myself. Everything from appendicitis to pancreatitis. It could be so many different things but no medical professional has been able to tell me what it is specifically. Am I really going to have to spend the rest of my life eating applesauce and chicken broth?
