- CASE FILE
Many years of debilitating pain and fatigue, only to be told by doctors that I'm too young to be in pain and nothing is wrong with me.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have had debilitating pain and fatigue for the past 8 years that has gotten worse as the years go by. I had a cervical fusion in 2013 with a 50/50 chance of it making me feel better. It did not work. I have been told since then by numerous doctors that I'm too young to be in pain and to just get over it with antidepressants. In 2017 I finally found a doctor that listened and did proper testing and blood work. I was recently diagnosed with Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease, fibromyalgia, tourettes syndrome, raynauds phenomenon, possibly Lupus, generalized anxiety disorder, ptsd, etc. Doctors are finally starting to listen to me, but I'm still far from the right answers and treatments. Debilitating pain has been the worst, and doctors aren't much help anymore when it comes to pain relief. I feel that the world needs to know what people like myself are going through and that we are not faking our symptoms. I don't choose to be sick and unhealthy, and others like myself sure don't choose this life either! We need help and this show is a good step!
