    ok i have a huge list of documented problems. my mainframe diseases are Marfans Syndrome & Lupus. I have disk degen disease in my lower back. Am a female with alot of feminem problems. I have seen PM Doc after PM Doc. Have been scheduled for a Hysterectomy for 6 months now. have been wanting this surgery since I was 15 y/o. I am on SSD been disabled since birth. Have insurance through social security. I am doing there shots they give me in the back they make my life way worse. I am just about bed riddin at the age of 26. My life is laying on the couch just trying to find that one place i can be thats makes me comftorable. I have just about ran everyone in my life out. Because all I do is b* and moan n bicker bout how horrible I feel. I was 230lbs and in less then 8 months i lost over 100+lbs am now 5ft 11in 123lbs. I look deathly ill. My PCP had me on Tramadol 50mgs x 2 a day and 2 Percocet 5/325mgs a day and now that ohio has been wrote off as a prescription od state I must not go through PM to get Narcotics and treatment. So I have been trying to find one there all discriminating against me. The guy I am seeing now who actually agreed to help me is now putting me on Lyrica + Neurontin 900mgs a day + Symbalta + Methocarbamacol 500mgs x 2 a day + Meloxicam 15mgs x 1 a day. He told me that I am to young for Narcotics and that its no life for someone to live and that this is all in my head and just need that assessed and wants to give me shots again in my back.
