My friend,Susan, is 54 years old and completely bedridden.Doctors and specialist have no answers for us.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Sue was diagnosed with fibromyalagia, had her thyroid removed and it regrew again, and has high blood pressure. These medical conditions were many years before her newer symptoms. She has had endless tests, scan and bloodwork with many doctors and specialists and still no answers. She has tried traditional medicine and non-traditional for her ailments but nothing is helping. With no true diagnosis, I have been unable to get her into John Hopkins for further testing. Overall she is a very positive person, but she has bouts of depression when she realizes that she could spend the rest of her life in bed. Her sister lives with her. We have a nurse with her for a few hours everyday, but that is becoming a financial strain on her. She is able to feed herself but needs assistance for everything else. We no longer get her out of bed because she is unable to bear weight on her legs. Her falls have sent her to the hospital. We always pray that she gets a doctor who will be intrigued with her symptoms and help us find answers but unfortunately we haven't found that one person yet. I am constantly googling ailments hoping to find a lead somewhere or to someone. I felt hope when I saw the commercial for this show. I do not have any of her stuff to upload but will get it if someone can help us. With every specialist I got her into, she would get excited. I do not want to raise her hopes again until I know for sure I can help her.
