My Journey Back to Health

I am a 34 year old female who has been experiencing a whole slew of seemingly unrelated issues for over 10 years. It started with fibromyalgia type symtoms and numbness in my fingers especially when I would try to go to sleep. It hurt when people touched me. Even the slightest pressure was excruciating not to mention waking up at night if I could even get to sleep in the first place with horrible pain because my hands were numb for hours or as I tried to go to sleep, I could feel them going numb. Over the years I also started getting headaches, which I almost never had until my 20s, and backaches so bad I had to adjust my back 4 to 5 times a day to get minutes if relief. I was on the verge of giving up. I couldnt imagine what 60 would feel like if 30 felt this bad.

Starting to Heal

I’m 26, female, and have been trying to rid myself of acne, fatigue, depression, and excess weight.

This Modern Life…(‘s) diet is killing me

I am 35 years old, a female and there’s just a ton of swelling throughout my whole body. It is mostly localized in my uterus (my husband and I have figured out that much) and have ruled out the most normal (I say normal, because for me right now it would feel normal to have the whatever-thing that is wrong with me to actually have a name, like ulcerative colitis or chron’s. (Both of which are horrible auto-immune diseases that I am not trying to make light of.) I have this swelling that is always present, but tends not to swell AS much when I eat well; whole, balanced meals. Perhaps when our insurance situation is better we can have more access to doctors that can actually look at what is going on.
