Hi I am littleotter,
My health issues really increased in 2000. I had been through many tests already, when the Doc finally decided that I had Fibromyalgia( all the other culprits had been ruled out). Which were: Lupus; Lymes; and Epson Barr.
On Nov,14,2000, my Ovaries were removed due to very large cysts. After that all ***l broke loose on me. I suffered from horrible pain although out my body, it was like I was on fire! I could not be touched, not even by the softest of material. My eyes were also on fire from the lights around me,even darkness was not dark enough. During the day light hours, I had to literally wear 2 pairs of the blackest shades that I could find. It barely healed to ease my suffering.
then to top it off I could not stand the tiniest bit of sound. My hearing became ultra sensitive, even after the sound or noise ended I could still hear it far off in the distance. It was beyond maddening! I was in torment of the worse kind,with NO HELP,because the Docs did not know what was going on.
Well thankfully,that all came to an end. Then my neck became exceedingly worse, I have very severe DDD in my Cervical Spine, and it was causing huge problems severe pain.
Then we uprooted ourselves and moved 400 miles away. Since we have been here, I have been diagnosed with the following:
1) a twisted colon (possible birth defect)
2) Gerd, Esophigitis
3) Asthma w mild COPD
4) This year 2008, I was also diagnosed as being
Paranoid with Schizophrenic Tendencies (huge blow)
I already suffer from severe depression and anxiety
5) Just 5 months ago, I under went surgery on my Cervical Spine( they removed 2 disc's and fused 3 vertibrae
6) Now I am using a CPAP, For very severe Chronic Sleep Apnea
