ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have been diagnosed with lichen Schlerosus since in was iny 20s and I'm in pain 24/7 itching and burning. It is also on my side which hurts all the time and also on my baxk, stomach and breast and thigh. I have been on steroids forever and this year now diagnosed with colitis and sick all the time with abdominal pain and throwing up because it is so hard to know what I can and cannot eat:( I'm depressed to the point sometimes I just want the pain to go away and end:( dermatologist just keep changing my meds and has totally messed up my mind and my memory and my balance which is so frustrating! Sometimes I can't even remember names of people right in front of me a d j have been told it is the steroids. I can't lose weight and continue to gain which has also made me even more depressed especially when you here you are obese from your doctors. I also have arthritis from being overweight and joints hurt all the time but my two main concerns is nobody knows how to really treat lichen Schlerosus and colitis together and I'm so sick and tired of being sick a d tired and I want to live!
