Always a “super busy, high energy person” who never got sick, Kimberli Freilinger was baffled when, in graduate school, “things started cropping up.”
“I’d kind of almost fall every once in awhile and I thought that was kind of odd,” the Silverton native said. “I thought it was because I was working on my degree and my internship and trying to be the perfect parent.”
Three years after graduation things took a turn for the worse. Kimberli and husband Shawn Freilinger had two little boys. She taught at George Fox University and ran a private counseling practice. Symptoms began to pile up – migraine headaches and severe nerve and muscle pain.
