Recently I received an email from a woman (you'll see her post below), and her plight really touched me. I did a lot of research on her symptoms and she wrote back to say her new specialist feels most, if not all of this is being caused by poor posture and having to carry her 60-pound special needs child, but she still feels that more is going on.
So I wanted to post this here to see if anyone had any other ideas. I sent her some information on multiple sclerosis but she said that fortunately it has been ruled out. If anyone has any ideas for her I know she will really appreciate it. Thanks everyone! M
"I am currently having several symptoms that are progressively getting worse but, the doctors don’t seem to think they are serious even though they are affecting my everyday activities. It all started with a cramp in my thumb that never went away and weeks later I had a pain in my left pointer finger which also continues to bother me. My limbs will go numb as if they are asleep even though I will be using them at the time. I also am having problems with my vision and if I look at anything for more than a couple minutes everything goes blurry. Thus far doctors think that all these issues are unrelated and that the only thing it could possibly be is stress. I have been waiting for an MRI for four months and still don’t have prior authorization. I have given up fighting with doctors who don’t care and insurance companies who don’t want to pay. Unfortunately this means I live in constant pain and fear. Please help I don‘t know where to go from here."
