ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos type 3 about three years ago. For the past six years I’ve been living in chronic pain. I don’t get off the couch if I don’t have to. Walking, sitting and laying on my back all exasperate the pain. The pain never goes away. I also have periods of extreme nausea and sometimes vomiting. I feel like my body is in constant shock. In addition I have irritable bowel syndrome with constipation. I can go a week or two with no bowel movement. I also suffer from anxiety and depression. I feel like my life stopped the second the pain set in. I haven’t been able to travel home to see family, make plans with friends or go out on the weekends. I feel like my body is in constant shock. I really need to get my symptoms under control enough to live my life. I’ve seen 36 doctors none of which have been able to help me. Please help, I need answers.
