Hello, I'm new to Healingwell.com and I'm already quite impressed with the gathered information I've learned from everyone. Awesome this is available! I just recently found out that I have Celiac Spru. Before was told I just had a gluten intolerence along with a number of other different allergies/intolerences. I have been on a strict gluten free diet for 10 months and still having a hard time with symptioms. Just 2 weeks ago I had another colonoscoy/EGD and they found I have a hiatal hernia, and a very twisty turny intestines then normal. My doctor then said that she couldn't do anything about it and then gave me another prescription of more pain killers. Great, another road block. I've had my gallbladder taken out in Septmeber of 09', had exploritory surgery checking for endometriosis (which they did not find any), a couple colonoscopies/EDG's, CATScans, ultrasounds, and countless blood and stool samples. Not only do I have a crazy thyroid, but my IBS-C is debilitating! Just 2 months ago I quit a job that I loved because of my health. Very discouraging. I did go just last week to a natural path doctor and he took my blood pressure laying down and then standing up and my blood pressure dropped by quite a bit. He was quite alarmed and he did what is called Natural Response Testing. Have any of you done that? If you have, did you follow the treatment plan and have any success? I was quite sceptical, but I am quit desperate. He said my thyroid was very weak (which I knew I had issues with), he found live, bladder, colon, intestines, adrenal glands, and heart were weak too.
My symptoms are, I have food allergies galore, severe abdominal pain, flu like symptoms, headaches, joint pain, dizziness, leg cramps, and nausia all hit me like a brick wall just 2 years ago. I never had this severe of health issues until then. Very scary. Not to sound dramatic, but I feel like I'm slowly dying. I use to be over weight and had a hard time loosing, but just last December when I started the gluten free diet I lost 60 lbs in just 3 months! It actually really scared me because I was sooo sick. Not really sure all my question honestly. I have been so through the ringer with doctors. I'm very discouraged.
1. I just needed to vent. Thanks :)
2. I would just like to know if their are others that are going through what I'm going through.
3. Does anyone know much about fecal transplant? Or have done it?
4. Does anyone know much about parasite symptoms?
5. Has anyone ever had Natural Response Testing done and has had successful results?
6. What are something that you've done that's helped you?
I live in Alaska and unfortunetly the labs here aren't very good. I had a stool sample done last year and it showed everything was fine. Then my doctor sent me to Seattle because she freaked me out that I may of have cancer and they did a stool sample and found a whole bunch of stuff! Yersina (bad bacteria), pinworms, low on a certian good bacteria, and some other stuff. Which all of these I was treated in January, I just still haven't gotten better.
You know the depressing part, is I'm only 24.
Okay, that's enough talking...
