Emily’s Story

May I introduce you all to Emily…

I met Emily on Instagram whilst she was searching for answers. The doctors believed at this stage she had Fibromyalgia. After a week of talking she was officially diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Raynauds. I also have Raynauds along with my Fibromyalgia.

Here is Emily’s Story…

Thank you for following along with my story! I am 23 years old and live in the US, more specifically the Northeast. I have struggled with chronic illness since I was 17 years old.

I was first diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome when a huge flare up kept me back from everything, including school. As I worked my way through college, I picked up a GERD diagnosis as well. Once I began my journey in the real world post college, I became extremely sick once again. This flare was nothing like I ever experienced before. In the spring of 2018, I was tested and diagnosed with SIBO, which means there was bacteria growth in my small intestine. While SIBO is something you can get rid of, it can come back just as easy. I will probably live with this condition for the rest of my life.

    Thank you for shattering your story. I also have GERD, Diverticulosis, Ulcerative Colitis and a collapsed colon. I am on a strict diet that allows wiggle run for any fun food.
