ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have dealt with the preceding symptoms for the last 7 years, and they have progressively gotten worse. I used 80hrs of sick time in 2 months from being so sick I couldn't work. I have horrible memory loss and feel like an 80 year old with Alzheimer’s. I experience terrible fatigue and hardly have energy to work an 8 hour day at an office job. I have also had a rash all over my body that no one can seem to figure out how to get rid of and it’s only progressing more each day. This has impacted my life in such a negative way that it’s caused issues in my personal relationships, made working nearly impossible and doing anything that requires energy is basically non-existent. I also experience pain in my back, joints, and muscles daily. I also deal with inflammation that makes my feet and hands swell as well as the rest of my body. I went to doctors and they’ve all told me that my labs are normal and it’s just stress related. I changed my diet to an anti-inflammatory diet, which has helped lessen the symptoms, but they still persist. I have breast implants and endometriosis and feel the implants are causing these issues and exacerbating my endometriosis, which only makes my symptoms worse. I’ve been given lotions for my rash, which did nothing. I’ve been lowering my stress levels, which hasn’t improved my symptoms and I’ve had numerous labs run and nothing has come back abnormal. I’m frustrated beyond belief and am willing to do anything to find out what’s causing this. My doctor basically shrugged me off because he thinks I’m crazy and the symptoms are stress related. I’ve lost faith in Western medicine and refuse to give my money to someone who doesn’t believe my symptoms are more than just stress related.
