No quality of life
Hi i am new to this site, but have been on it numerous times. I am a 20 year old female and i have just got sick and tired of being sick and tired. I have no quality of life and it is so frustrating. I began experiencing back pain September of last year. I literally woke up with it which is what frustrates me the most. It started gradually with many ER trps because no doctor would listen to me. It has just gotten worse, i learn to live with the new pain until i become immune to it, but then it gets worse. With each worsening of pain i just learn to get use to it. I have tried numerous medications, the tens unit, and i began working out. I have worked at Arby's for four years which doesn't sound like a damanding job unless your 100 pounds and 5 feet. I lift things heavier than me and i never knew i wasn't lifting things right. I have done sports my whole life mainly softball and cheerleading. Looking back i just can't understand what i did. I have gone to numerous doctors hoping they will fix me and they just think i am a drug seeker. I look at kids at my college and i just get so depressed. My pain makes my depression worse. The only friend i have is my mom who has been through hell of her own and also has three herniated dics so atleast she understands. The only diagnosis i have had is to straight of a back. I just don't see that diagnosis being the source of all this pain. If anyone has any suggestions or advice i would love to hear it maybe i am just missing something. I am sorry to rant i just need a doctor who will listen to me, i want to be a normal 20 year old, and i just want to be fixed..

I don't want to go rushing to the drs but i keep thinking what if i don't this time and it is something bad. I don't know if it's linked but i had campylobator food poisoning a couple of months ago (no vomiting but awful diarrhea) i had to have a week of antibiotics and the toilet symptoms got better. Ever since i have had an upper left back ache that hasn't gone away just some days it's worse...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
