I have been dealing with Dr's and having meds thrown at me for quite some time now. I have been feeling so darn sick every single day and every time that I go to the Dr. to tell them that the meds they are giving me are making me sick, something else is thrown at me.
This past tuesday was my breaking point and I have decided I cant do the meds anymore. I dont know what happened....but something in me just snapped and I was having some very serious and scarey thoughts going on in my head. I couldnt shake the thoughts and I knew it had to be medicines that I am taking because I have been having side effects from EVERYTHING! I immediately called my Dr. and they were going to do some investigating on the meds and I was to see them in the morning because it was close to closing time. I also went to my therapist and talked with her about what was going on and she also stated it was medicine related.
When I went to my Dr. the next day and got further into what happened she wanted to put me on Abilify. I just got done stating that I am sensitive to meds (which she knows) and she wanted me to see a psychiatrist so he could prescribe MORE! My husband and I decided enough was enough because all the meds they were putting me on were NOT helping.
I found an MD that was holistic and immediately called and got an appointment yesterday. She took one look at me and realized how sick I was. We had a 2 hour consultation about the 27 page questionnaire I had to fill out. She told me that most of the sypmtoms I was having sounded like I was deficient in B12. I was given an injection and I immediately felt better. The muscle cramps stopped and I actually felt human again. She ordered 19 blood tests including: EB viral profile, lyme, celiac, vit d, cbc, lipid profile, free t3 and t4, tsh, dhea-s, and numerous others. I am also encouraged to have a stool analysis and a food allergy test. (which are going to be out of pocket expenses)
For the first time since all this mess started, I feel as if I am on the right track and someone is going to be able to help me!!!! I am so excited. I am feeling pretty crappy today but I had an amazing day yesterday and am looking forward to moving forward to a healthier me!! My goal is to be off all the meds and I know in time I will be able to do so!!!
Just had to share the news!!! Hope all of you have a wonderful day!!
