For 10+ years, I struggled with “unexplained chronic pain.”
I was a fitness enthusiast yet constantly on a diet, going from fad to fad, counting points and calories, obsessing over my food, always trying to lose 5-10 pounds. Funny, the more I dieted, the worse I felt (even when the number on the scale, and my clothes seemed to fit better).
I was so tired.
I started seeing neurologists when I could no longer walk easily. Colleagues had to carry me up and down the stairs. I had frequent migraines, sitting for any length of time was excruciating, I was fatigued and cried a lot.
While I was undergoing treatment for chronic pain, my father suddenly died of heart disease that we never knew he had. He was the PICTURE of health. He didn’t drink, didn’t smoke, was very athletic and muscular, had a decent American diet, but he died. At 50.
