    Chronic Pain & Passions

    I am recovering from severe anemia due to PCOS, and since then I’ve dealt with chronic pain in my back,legs and knees. I’ve had chronic pain for years buts it’s gotten worse and I’m still being tested for a couple of autoimmune diseases.

    With all of this happening, I’ve had to stop doing what I love and am very passionate about because everything is unmanaged.
    With those who struggle with chronic illness, how do you keep doing the things you’re passionate about. The things that create joy in your life? It’s really affecting me not being able to do the things I like. #ChronicPain #AutoimmuneDisease #PolycysticOvarySyndrome #AnkylosingSpondylitis #Anemia #MentalHealth

    Iron deficiency anemia with no explanation

    For over 2 years I’ve been receiving iv iron and blood transfusions to keep my hemoglobin between 7-9
    Drs have run all kinds of blood tests bone marrow etc
    They can’t figure out why I can absorb iron and produce red blood cells
    Any one similar

    Frustrated

    I need to vent to people that get it. My pain has been horrible recently on top of other issues I’ve been dealing with. So, I was being tested for celiac and the blood test came back negative…I’m waiting for the sample results to come back. The doctor has already said he wants to do a colonoscopy because of my anemia. This same man did a colonoscopy a year ago. I’ve already had one major stomach surgery. I had such a large hiatal hernia, that my stomach was in my chest. So I’m used to being poked and prodded. I’m frustrated with having to schedule another colonoscopy. I’m 33 and this is the 3rd one I’ve had. I’m losing it over here. I just want answers. #IrritableBowelSyndromeIBS #Anemia #NissenFundoplication #Stomach

    Emptionally Numb #Anemia

    Who's the unlucky person that gets an anaphylactic reaction after an iron infusion. Me that's who. It was a severe allergic reaction that caused difficulty breathing, chest pain, rash, and severe itching.

    I had it all planned out,
    1. Get IV.
    2. Get lab work done,
    3. Get Iron infusion
    4. Get Inflectra infusion.
    5. Go home and start to feel better.

    Fu#*ing body just doesn't want to follow the plan. Seems the plan includes hanging out with Mr. Sharp Belly Pain for who knows how long and starting Prednisone again.

    Emotionally numb. #IronDeficiencyAnemia
