I've been sick as long as I can remember. I've gone to multiple specialists. I currently have a tumor growing on my spinal nerves at erb's point. I have been told that the doctors will not biopsy it because of fears of being paralized. I have extreme headaches that last 7 to 11 days. I become confused and exhausted. I have had brain scans done and they revealed abnormal blood vessals in my brain. My neuroligist thought I might have heart problems. I always have really low blood preasure ranging from 92/43 to 104/56. My kidneys hurt bad during my headaches and feels like my back is going to blow out. I have severe twitching and numbness in my arms and legs. I have purple skin due to lack of circulation. I have already suffered through 11 surgeries. Most trying to manage my severe endometriosis. In addition, I have acid reflux disease(no flap in stomach), IC(bladder problem), fibro cystic breast disease. I have gained weight because of lack of motivation and fatigue. I battle depression. During my episodes my body hurts so much I cant wear clothes and I sleep standing up. I am too exhausted to stay awake and anything that touches me hurts incredibly bad. My new symptom is full body throbbing when I awake. I get nausea and have to wait a couple minutes before it goes away. I dont feel any pain when this happens. I suffered from swollen tonsils for years and they took them out to relieve preasure on my tumor. It still feels like I have them and they are swollen and hurt. I feel disorientated and cant walk straight. I have been battling for the majority of my life. I would like some answers on why my body is not functioning properly like a normal 27 year old female.
