I am curious and don't know what this parvovorus is so I will look it up.
I'm in bed most of the time with hep C and adrenal exhaustion trying to
get off steroids so I have all this time to read these posts.
I want to ask you though:
what kind of flooring do you have in your house. *** Wood flooring
what type of climate do you live in. *** Southern California
what type of building do you work in. *** my home
how old is your house *** pretty old, but it's not moldy.
what do you eat *** gluten free diet. My son has Celiac Disease. I'm neg for CD and the gene for CD.
what was life like before you got sick. *** Fine. I was exercising and losing weight. I was only about
30 pounds over weight, and was going to finally do it. Then I got parvo. It was awful. Then it seemed to go away, but I'd have "episodes" of joint pain when my immune system was being hit by a cold. This bout has been a nightmare. I considered MS, but I looked up Parvo one night when I was having trouble using a gluegun to help my daughter do a project. It just occured to me that my parvo from a YEAR ago might be doing this to me!!!!
Feel free to ignore all these questions. i'm asking because of
some things I've observed in myself, family and others over the yrs.
*** You don't understand... I welcome ANY help. I'm so sick of being sick. I nearly lost it when my last dr decided I was "depressed".... but then I thought better of it... I figured it I went ballistic he'd have me forcibly commited! hahaha..... It's like, he doesn't believe my joints hurt... he doesn't believe I'm tired... he doesn't believe I feel tacks poking me incessently... he doesn't believe it could be the sudden anemia... .. No, it has to be in my HEAD???!!!! I'm so without hope when a dr who is supposed to be the one helping me totally ignores all my symptoms. He was sitting there with my results of an enlarged liver, enlarged spleen, anemia, me telling him my joints ache badly, I have tingling, pins and needles, and extreme fatigue that comes and goes... and he tells me it's depression. I felt like he was being spiteful because I had vehemently argued with him about
the asthma dx he'd given me several months earlier. According to him, the reasonable explanation that my three kids had upper respitory colds had nothing to do with the fact that I was sick. I was only looking to see if mine had developed into more than a chest cold since I felt pretty lousy. He decided I had asthma. We had a big disagreement about
it. I insisted I would need to consult with a specialist if I were going to accept an asthma dx. He was so annoyed with me that I felt the contempt. It was so unprofessional. But I was right. The Pulmonologist said I had an acute bronchitis and NOT asthma. But my dr had me inhaling $300.00 prescript
ions of advair for the rest of my life..???? (yes, my insurance covered most of it, but still! It's all so crazy to think that was my expert medical care!)
