I am beyond frustrated. I am 30 years only and a white female. 4'11 and 75lbs. Everything that is going wrong I keep getting told is due to my size, gender, and race.

Issues: fibromyalgia, severe osteoporosis (-3.4 in my spine), my left lung has collapsed twice, patella tendinitis, I had cervical cancer(removed through surgery), before starting birth control my persiod lasted 3 weeks a month, Severe vitamin d deficiency, stigmatism in my eyes, and I have lost all but 4 of my teeth and those are rotting from the inside out despite crowns.

Medications: savella, tramadol, etoldac, lostrimin 24, spiriva, xopenex, actonel, 50,000 idu vitamin d

My mother was also small, had similar lung, eye and teeth issues. She passed away at 45 from malabsorption syndrome and periphial neuropothy

My daughter age 9 also has the stigmatism and has had 9,000 of dental work done already with lots more to go

What in the world is wrong with us!!!!! I am way too young to be this sick all the time!!!!

  • I am thinking that you may have some genetic bone problem, but I'm unsure, really...I can tell it could probably be because of your bones because of your stature, your numerous arthritic problems, and your teeth problems. I don't want to say dwarfism, because there are people of average height around this weight, or maybe it could be a mild Osteogenisis Imperfectica...it is genetic, by the way, so it could explain why your mother may be having these problems and why your daughter has them, too.I hope I was of service...

  • One of the things which will help with the vitamin D deficiency, as well as the bone problems, is regularly spending time exposing your skin to sunlight. Encourage your daughter to do the same.Be sensible, don't go and get sunburn on the first day.
