About Me: Female, 51, Bonney Lake, WA, member since Jun 2013
I have been ill since around 1990. That is when I had routine blood work done while getting checked for what I thought was the beginnings of carpal tunnel in my wrists. When the blood work came back the dr went nuts and sent me to a bunch of specialists. My white blo
[More]odcells were off the charts. None of the Dr's came up with the same dx so I quite going to them because I didn't feel sick and they weren't saying anything positive. About 10 years later I found myself feeling sick. Went to a dr and he did blood work and again went nuts with the specialists who again didn't agree on anything. I did continue going though to try to find answers, the closest I came was fibromyalgia. Fast forward to 2013. I have in the mean time been dx'd with fibromyalgia, CHF, AFIB, COPD, ILD (interstitial lung disease), DDD (degenerative disc disease), cyst in center of spinal cord, Diabetes type 2, meniers, ibs, spine turning L in 2 places, fused disc with sciatic nerve fused inbetween, 2 bulging discs, neuropathy, venus anomaly with associated cavernoma on L front temperal lobe of brain, chronic kidney stones, sleep apnea, precancerous polyps, TMJ, gerds, anxiety and the lasted dx in may of 2013 Cirrhosis, colitis, hiatal hernia in asophogus, gastritis, and had 12 polyps removed. So all in all I'd say I'm in pretty good health. ha ha ha. Oh and I have not slept right in years. I've always just said that sleep and I don't get along so we've just decided to stay away from each other. lol
