New diagnosis

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi Everyone,

I have just been diagnosed after having problems for many years.

Until my appointment i had never herd of this condition so I am learning quickly what it really means.

I have had this condition for many years and it has gradually gotten worse and worse. my specialist believes there is another condition also involved but has not given me a name yet (something with my throat) so is starting off with Botox to see if any improvement given.

So, my daily food intake involves 1 Cup of tea

1 small omelette

soup for tea

or similar to this

then I only drink water

so why oh why am I gaining weight.

my specialist has said he has no clue so I am looking for any others out there who may be struggling with this awful condition and having odd side effects ie weight gain not loss. It is really getting me down.

I exercise daily and hardly eat .... it makes no sense

Also, any tips for making life easier while waiting for treatment?

thank you everyone
