Thanks Chartreux, It's Sunday and am missing church and I should be there for this service. I have been intricat in getting a mission group together and we have the organization there this morning and then I was to over see a meal. Sadly my husband is filling in for me. I was so excited to go hear about this group. I had to sit and cry, but have to remember that crying hurts my chest and throat more and makes things swell more. Just angers me so very much how doctors play with our lives. I may write a letter to my family doc and tell him if he doesn't want to walk through this with me, I will have to move on. He is the one who writes a scrip out for my pain meds when I need it. I hate to leave him, he is nice, but isn't taking me serious. I am also afraid of my insurance stopping payment for these things since I have no DX for anything but asthma and that is still not conclusive according to the asthma allergy doc last week. He wants me to do a mexorthorate or something to that affect, to make sure I have asthma. However, it could cause a severe asthma attack and makes more complications. I would have to go off my inhalers except for the albuterol and the solution. Which right now nothing is helping much. I am out of breath pretty much of the time. But it doesn't feel like my asthma. I feel it's an infection or something.
strawb- thanks for the suggestions of the books. I know about the cancer yeast diet. I have no energy to try to change that right now, However I know I should. But to cook the way I should just isn't easy. I usually make decent meals, meaning I cook from scratch 90% of the time. It's just when we have an acitivty that we go for the quick things. I do not eat red meat, we have cut out white potatoes and I know all the other stuff to cut out. Just don't have the energy to plan meals and cook them and make salads the way I should. I have talked to the family doc about getting tested for the yeast. I know the GYN a few years ago put me on some meds for yeast and I did start feeling better. But went right back to this down hil spiral. I just want to get to the bottom of why my chest feels like a vise grip or someone stepping on it.
thanks again. But I think if my husband would go with me to the rheumy or the family doc and say hey, we want to get to the bottom of this, We are tired of her feeling like this.
