Im a 22 yr old female with Systemic lupus, Fibromyalgia, heart palpitations/arrhythmias, anxiety, PTSD,Depression,and Seizures. Within the last year i developed a issue with my stomach, its tender to the touch more so on the left side than the right, i've vomited almost 2 times a week due to a upset stomach, my stomach feels bloated and also looks distended, I've gained 30 lbs in less then 4 months, I've also had a problem with my neck for over 10 years. My dr's have tried every medication they can possibly think of to try and rid me of the problems. I've done physical therapy, steroid injections, i've tried multiple medications with no results. As of 4 days ago i lost all sight in my left eye, my neck is almost impossible to move, i've had hives on my thighs, have been spitting up black hard stringy sputum, and I recently stopped Ciprofloxacin 250mg. I'm 22 years old I shouldn't have to hate waking up everyday. My medical file is severely large for someone my age which makes me worry if i have been getting the right diagnoses. I'm on over 8 different medications. I am a native american woman. So I do have to go thru contract health who has been making me jump thru hoops for the last year. They Denied my cardiology appts, my GI appts and the appt I had with a Spine specialist. I've tried almost everything I can possibly think of to try and fix the problems i'm having. I'm hoping someone can tell me what I should be asking my Primary Dr to recommend me.  Because as of right now they have run out of options for me, i'm tired of suffering everyday.

Also, I don't exactly agree with most of my diagnoses. due to the fact that none of the medications they prescribe me for my lupus and fibromyalgia do not work whatsoever  I'm still without eyesight in my left eye. it has now been 4 days. I'm scared for my life. I have friends who are in the medical field who are saying i could have abdominal abscesses, or with as swollen as my neck and spine is that it could be a start of a bacterial meningitis. Someone Please help me. I'm out of options and running out of energy to function on a daily basis.
