I am new,my name is Sandy. I am 49,single mom from WI.
I have multiple ailments going on and it took me years to finally get diagnosises.Here are some(so you know my background):
Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis(knees,shoulders,hands,feet,elbow-you get the picture),Degenerative Disc Disease(L-4/L-5), TMJ syndrome, myofacial pain syndrome, achille's tendonits, plantar faciitis, ulcerative colitis, chronic daily headaches, chronic migraines(regular and hormonal)and then lets add in depression and anxiety.Oh I forgot, I do have brain lesions. The last MRI in 2003 showed I had 4-5 of them, apparently caused by my migraines.
I have had so much 'therapy',and I do take daily meds.
The one issue I have that NEVER gets better is my neckache. I have had it since 1987.All I can say is,I have had 9 whiplashes in my life. My last MRI did show a bulging disc with degeneration the Drs. just blow me off and say...'everyone has some degernation as they age'.That leads to another story....I just wnated to introduce myslef.

  • Accidents can allow some bacterial infections to take hold. You may have been fighting them off and then after whiplash or other accident, then all those symptoms cropped up. Lyme Disease can cause ALL the symptoms you are talking about. Check out www.Lymenet.org Think about it, what are the chances that you have ALL those diseases as separate entities? It is more likely that a couple things are causing all those symptoms. good luck and email if you have questions.
