I need assistance. I've been circling through the Boston medical fascilities for 5 years. I have multiple issues. Crohn's, IBS, Chronic inflamation, Epilepsy, Diabetes II, Sleep Apnea, Neuropathy, and Post Herpetic Neuropathic abdominal pain, Oral Herpes, Chronic thrush, Hypertension, Severe Degenerative Arthritis of the ankles and back, Tarsal Tunnel, Plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, etc, ect, ect. I take a boat load of meds. I was just referred to Mayo and they rejected me..."we wouldn't offer anything that you haven't had". What I would like is for someone to take all of my medical issues into account and try to deduce some kind of plan instead of adding more meds. I know that some of these meds are causing some of the newer issues(prednisone ie diabetes and hypertension).
I know I am looking for a miracle but is there anyone out there who knows of a place or Doctor who might be able to help. I have been medically disabled for 5 years and just feel as though I'm on a slow downward spiral. I'm only 48. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
