Wow.  I dont even know where to start. I was on here a few years ago> Kids and I had gotten bitten up a lot at our cottage in Northern Michigan. I got sick right away and my daughter who already has asthma and gerd was sort of non symptomatic at first.  I treated with Doxy and IV Rosephine (sp) a year after i got sick. Couldnt get a doctor to continue and Dr. S in Pennsylvania was getting too costly, (single mom 2 kids)>. I still get monthly flare ups but they are manageable most of the time. I dont have a doctor who believes me. Once a year I get pretty sick and it last about 2-3 straight weeks. Lately my daughter has been so ill she  barely gets out of bed. Naturally the doctors are treating asthma and gerd, she throws up after every meal> she has had endoscopy, upper GI, ultrasounds, and gall bladder HIDA. They never find anything and are starting to say it is in her head. Sound familiar.
Hands are getting tired so let me cut to the chase. Im in a flare up, bad one, and my doctor is finally sending me somewhere, Cleveland Clinic (i know right..big waste of time?) and im wondering if I should drag my daughter and make them look at us as a combo? wont it make them look at it closer?
Please advise

Hi Northlover,

Welcome back to the forum! I'm so very sorry that you find yourself having to come back here though. In my opinion, I do think you should bring your daughter with you so they can see that you are both sick. Don't give up! someone will listen sooner or later. Most of us have gone through this same situation.

As I was reading your post about your daughter, I remember having something similiar with my stomach. I had all of the tests above done too that you posted and I couldn't hold anything down. Finally, another upper GI was done and a growth was discovered. It wasn't cancerous but it was irritating my stomach so bad that nothing would stay down, not even water. maybe it is time to find another Gastro doctor.

Hi Northlover, please read my post Topic - Tic Tox ask your Doctor about it. I feel if we get enough people requesting the remedy we can get it in the states for everyone!!
