Patient Leader

I've had more than one doctor tell me exactly what I already know: "Well. You're a complicated patient." Not only do I suffer from debilitating Bipolar I Disorder compounded by severe anxiety and PTSD, I have had physical health issues (since forever but) since I woke up one day in late May 2015 and could not move my body. I was paralyzed from the neck down and sincerely thought I was going to die. I was able to move after several hours, but not without immobilizing pain. I could not describe this new pain except to say it felt like "itching inside my bones." All kinds of tests have been run, including by the Mayo Clinic, but here we are 3+ years later, still puzzling things out...
