Hi im a 30 year old male who lives on a tiny island in the pacific, i have been diagnosed with Olliers disease when i was five years old and at that time none was known about the disease. My parents did not know what to do after talking to our family doctor and countless bone speacialists, it was the shriners childrens hospital that really gave us the whole story... after many 6 month check ups it was decided to forego operation to lenghthen my bones in my left arm(disease affects entire left side of my body). the procedure was painful at first but learned to deal with the pain... any waise im now 30 and living a very normal life. My doctor did tell me though that i would be expiriencing a lot of pain at around the age of 30, wich im now feeling. im taking a lot of over the counter pain medication, but was wondering if there is anything else that would help? before i forget I also have a growth on the left side of my head. could this be causing some of the symptoms that i feel right now? My symptoms include headaches nausea vomiting muscle tension and high anxiety and or panic disorder of wich im told or some kind of miss diagnoses?? Please e-mail me at john_jonie09@yahoo.com thank you...
