ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Hi, I am Christy! I live with Mixed Connective Tissue Disease, Lupus,
Scoliosis with degenerative disc disease, Osteoarthritis, RA, Bursitis, Insomnia, Depression, Fibromyalgia,
Anxiety with panic attacks,Plantar fasciitis, Raynauds Disease, Anemia, Gerd, Osteoporosis and
migraines. Most of this like the depression has gone on since I was about 16 and I am 46 now but the rest did not start to show itself until 2009. I am at a loss. I am on so many medicines and 2 shots a week just to keep my body from attacking itself. I have no energy to do anything, I used to love to cook and now my health has taken that from me. my hands, legs and feet swell up when I am in a flare that I can hardly even be touched. I hate my new life. I want my old life back. I am so worried that my daughter might have it. She has an IgG deficiency which is also auto immune. I need some answers. My first cousin has it and my mother has tested positive. So I know it is genetic. also, I just found out yesterday that I have a small fracture in my t9 vertebrae and I will be in a backbrace for the rest of my life now. the spine dr had never seen bones so bad as mine on a 46 year before.
