My story is 3.5 years long, but I'll give the nutshell version. I'm a female, 53 on 10/31. My whole life up until then, I was very active, softball, kayaking, hiking.. I was a Registered Dental Assistant for 25 years. April of 2012, I began to wake up nauseated and when I pushed myself to get to work, I was so sick. By 7/2012, I couldn't work. I was just too sick.
As of today, I have had many blood work ups, upper and lower GI tests, CT Scans, head, chest & abdomen. I have Kaiser. I have felt like my very young Dr. Is more bothered by me than wanting to help me. Every time I had test done, I had to ask for them. He made it sound like, ok, but I don't think it's necessary. I asked to see a Rheumatologist, she tested for Lupus, but said it came back negative and said I had Fibromyalgia and sent me back to my GP.
But the underlying bother I am having is. In the brain CT Scan, it reviled that I had a small Chiari Malformation, but again my doctor and the doc that read it said that it shouldn't be the cause of my illness. Does anyone with knowledge of this CM enough to know that if a CT Scan shows anything, is it possible for it to effect me like this. I am fighting to get my SSDI, I have been denied and have had no income for 3.5 years. It's been rough to say the least. It's been financially difficult for my husband. I don't know what I would have done if I were single?
Anyways, all input would be appreciated. Thank you!
