ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I am seeking help from Chasing The Cure because at this point I have nothing to lose. I have been in pain for 10 years and I am only 25. I wake up in pain, I go to bed in pain, and I am in pain every step in between. It a whole body pain but it is usually worse in my legs, arms, back, neck and hands. It usually feels like nerve pain and bone pain. I frequently have migraines as well. Sometimes there are random sudden pains, like hot liquid running down my spine, or the feeling of cold liquid in my legs. Other times it feels like someone is slicing along my nerves, or wrapping a wire around my bones. I am not taking any medication for it and so far nothing has helped very much. I have no official diagnosis other than migraines. It has impacted my life a lot. I used to be very active, but now it's hard to get moving. I have a job where people rely heavily on me being all there and sometimes it is very difficult with pain and brain fog to do that. I tend not to share with others my health struggles because it's difficult to explain that I am always in pain and no one knows why. I do my best to push through and live my life but it gets hard. It is physically demanding, emotionally draining, and socially frustrating. I do my best to stay positive. I have been to doctors and they usually head towards the auto immune diseases, but have never been able to give a clear explanation. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. If it is possible to have a healthier life, I want to find it. Please help me, I am too young to feel like I am 90.
