Over the past 4 years, I have been diagnosed with multiple

Resolved Question:

Over the past 4 years, I have been diagnosed with multiple medical conditions, bit what I have recently noticed, is how each condition in different parts of the body; eyes, shoulder, arms, hands knees and so forth, are all worse on the left side of my body. Is there anything significant about that, or is it just coincidence?

neurological system?

again,

From the things you mentioned, they could actually all be from one side of the body, with the exception of your eyes.

The reason they can all be from one side is because when you have an injury you end up moving in ways that "protect" the injured areas, and therefore other parts of your body can be affected.

, you have a frozen shoulder. That means that now when you need something instead of reaching with your left arm, you are contorting yourself into a way of getting it without moving that arm etc. That can eventually cause problems with other limbs.

Having said that, it is unlikely that ALL of the different areas of diagnosis are related to something on one side of your body.

Nonetheless, it might be a good idea to ask your doctor to send you therapy, and mention this to the physical therapist.

Does this help?
I want to make sure to give you excellent service, so please make sure you tell me what else you need to know.
