CHRISTOPHER EARNEST CHRISTMAN said...

I have been diagnosed with Allergies, Alopecia Areata, Arthritis, Asthma, Chronic Bronchitis, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Headaches, Chronic Sleep Deprivation, Debilitating muscle cramps and spasms, Depression, Deformed Sinuses, Diabetes, Digestive Disorders, Eczema, Gall Bladder Disease, Gastrointestinal Problems, High Blood Pressure, Hypertension, Insomnia, Psoriasis, PTSD, Sleep Apnea, Urinary Tract Infections, Unexplained Random Chest Pains (Dr. had me off work for a year trying to track down what was causing this. He could find the effect but not the cause.) Tore Ligaments, tendons and other tissue associated with all my major joints on the left hand side of my body (dealing with this at present), They tend to painfully lock up too..... Associated chronic pain, minus the meds for years. I live my life free, of meds, walls, prejudice and ultimatums. I don't do well with them...

I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (classical and hypermobility types), first in my family for this dominant genetic defect, my daughters also have it.

Associated diagnoses I have that often happen with EDS include Dysautonomia, Osteopenia, Raynaud's phenomenon, Livedo reticularis, and TMJ. I'm not sure if my Inflammatory Arthritis is because of the EDS or separate but it has also caused leaky valves, poor vision due to my eyes being unable to hold their shape, chronic muscle tightness and muscle vibrations, loose joints that separate constantly and the ability to concuss myself with minor head trauma.

I also have Sensory Processing Disorder and Geographic Tongue.

I didn't go to the doctor much as a child because of lack of insurance and because when I did go, they'd just tell me I was having growing pains. I started getting diagnosed two years ago, the year I turned 30. I'm still trying to accept that I have real issues and that I'm not just lazy or trying hard enough.
