Fibromyalgia - @Cryo_Kween_Seatttle

“My name is Casey & I wear the Purple AWARE Necklace to bring awareness to Fibromyalgia & Lupus, though I also have Hashimoto's, Lupus, EBV, & JHS. Symptoms include chronic fatigue, extreme joint pain, swelling & dislocations (partial & full) on a daily basis, chronic hives, muscle pain & spasms, light sensitivity, nerve pain, chronic pain, insomnia, & brain fog. This year, nothing was working to relieve my chronic pain & worst symptoms, and I was becoming desperate. I was as natural as possible with my treatment (to this day I only take 1 medication), but with the unrelenting pain & state of flare, I was considering immunotherapies & chemo. Thankfully, a friend posted a video of himself in a Cryo Chamber, asked if I would try it, & I've been healing ever since! I used Cryo to get my autoimmune diseases into remission during the next 3 months. I was thrilled but was also experiencing a whole different set of symptoms. Something was still wrong - I had Fibromyalgia. A month or two later when I had dislocated both of my hips, I was diagnosed with JHS. Despite receiving diagnosis after diagnosis, I refused to see it as bad news - just information I needed to figure out how to heal. This whole time, most doctors haven't been helpful. I've had to be my own advocate - fighting for myself & any progress I've made. What I've learned: it's all about mindset & there's never just ONE thing that works when it comes to healing. Today, I use Cryotherapy, Infrared Sauna, Lectin-Free Diet, Vitamin IV Treatments, Myofascial Release, Acupuncture, Chiropractor, CBD, Hydrotherapy, Forearm Crutches, Braces, & Meditation to heal. Though it might not seem like it, this is the healthiest I've ever been! I'm honestly thankful for the chance chronic illness has given me to make beneficial changes to my life. I'm still on my healing journey, but I work every day to achieve balance with my illnesses. I live on my own, work full-time, travel, & just this weekend did a hike in forearm crutches! Yes, living life the way I do is painful, but with my conditions, I'm in pain anyway. So why not make it worth it?! I try to live every moment out loud in the hopes that my story can help someone.” @Cryo_Kween_Seatttle
