New Contributor Looking Forward to Inspiring and Feeling More of the Love and Support I Get from The Mighty Community

Hello Mighty People. I am a newly minted writer who is working on believing in myself and my abilities. I have a rare condition called Dercums Disease and will have an article about my challenges facing my disability coming out soon on The Mighty. If anyone has this condition or knows anyone who does, please feel free to reach out. I have had it for almost twenty years. Have had 70 lipomas cut out of me in that time and have learned a lot from my experience working with doctors, both good and bad. As a writer, I look to inspire and support others who have to face challenges in life, no matter how big or small. I look forward to inspiring with all of you, my #mightycommunity #MightyTogether

I have Dercum's Disease & Fibromyalgia--TMJ--is there anyone out there that can give me ANY ADVICE on what/where I can go or do to get help?

I have lipoma nodules that are growing inward all over my body and putting pressure on nerves. No doctors have been able to help me, and I have seen dozens.  Experts in Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas have not helped.  CAN ANYONE HELP ME?  Regular meds like Cymbalta, Lyrica, Metformin do not help.
