My Story

My name is Sarah and I'm 27 years old. I have a lot of chronic health problems. Some of the conditions I battle are: peripheral neuropathy (axonal sensory-predominant PN), POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, disc desiccation, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) with insulin resistance, hyperacusis, misophonia, kidney disease, TMD (temporomandibular disorder), migraines, allergies, and others.  I have two spinal cord stimulators implanted to help with my pain. The combination of medications and the stimulators help, and I am thankful for the relief. I still deal with a lot of pain and spend way more time in bed than I would like to. I'm holding on and hoping and praying for a cure for all of this one day (hopefully in my lifetime).
