As i child was was beyond active. a sport with the 3 seasons at school along with soccer year around and 7 different kinds of dance.
after this much, end of 8th grade i began having reaccuring head aches, sensitivity to light, and depression.
By my freshman year, i also developed anxiety, was finally diagnosed with ocd and adhd. i started getting sharp shooting pains in my hands. pains in the joints of my fingers and metacarpals. along with fatigue. Each night i struggled to sleep, and never felt rested enough even if i did get to sleep early.
i was then wrongly diagnosed with juvenial rheumatoid athritis and fibromyalgia.
sophomore year I started having all over muscle aches and pains, even spasms. i have joint pain randomly, and in random places. I am unable to even move out of bed some mornings. along with that i delt with irredgular periods, and severe pain during menstration. i have trouble with stiffness of muscles and joints...especially in the morning and in cold weather.
i never fuller recoved from a replacement surgery of my acl. even physical therapy couldnt strengthen my knee. 4 years later and tmy knee still gives out randomly. i was later diagnosed with TMJ. my jaw cracks and pops constantly and sometimes locks. i have insuffiencies with my eight. i gained a lot my sophomore year...later lost it.then just reciently randomy a lot of weight loss.
i have bad circulation, i seem to have some kind of digestive issues lately. i have a loss of appitite some days. cramps and pains in my lower abdomin and stomach. bowl problems, and even some blood on the toilet paper.

its so much to del with and i cant seem to find anwers. i feel as though my doctors have given up on trying to help me find out whats wrong and blame it on psychological problems. and i must say, i get some pain, but the intense pain and aches i feel some days and even weeks are too extreme and there is too much going on that does not seem right or normal. i know there is and underlying issue or condition...i just want help finding out what it is....

ive found myself in tears too many times due to the frustration of not being able to tell coaches why i was unable to work to my full potential and why it seemed like if it wasn't one thing.. it was another. i have never faked an injury...why would i now.

if anyone can help...id appreciate it
