In recovery. Too many symptoms. Autoimmune disorder? HELP!
Since my sobriety of alcohol a year and a half ago after 10 years of abuse, I’ve been on a path to finding answers about my constant issues. Facial & neck swelling, gradually worsening over months- (esp when trying to exercise, seems impossible) painful , feels like I cant open mouth -my face will turn bright red & feel hot to touch(like flare ups)-w/ no temp.
Constant jaw pain (my face smashed into a rock wall 10 years ago, been to specialist who assumed TMJ)- the pain&cracking started instantly after incident&still have 10 years later. seems like it stopped cracking as easily exactly when my face started swelling 6+ months ago).
Constant hot flashes with minimal activity. Always feel like under skin is on fire (cant stand sitting in direct sunlight-dizzy&nauseous). Then sometimes I will get cold flashes where I feel freezing. Never inbetween.
And last but not least-Headaches& neck pain- comes in waves, but will last entire day. Feels like pinching.
Its always “too many symptoms at once” to bring to doctors. They will always only ever answer one of the symptoms, leaving out the rest. They do one test and when its negative thats it. No follow ups, no help. If anyone can relate to my experience with advice I would greatly appreciate the help. I am 25 years old, living clean and sober and ready to FEEL sober- I am sick of feeling sick!
Thank you so much in advance ♡
