serious health problem

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello, i am a 20 year old male and have been having problems for a few years now. They were quote managable untill about 6 moths ago when i started to really go down hill. I am now pretty much house bound, symptoms are fatigue, swollen lymph nodes in groin for 3 years, muscle wasting, weakness, twitching, spasms and tingling as well as being really tight also nerve pain from neck into both arms. General feeling of being unwell, constant stomach pain and pain when eating, always constipated and bloated as well as having chronic neck pain and stiffness. It literally feels like my body is shutting down, i have had blood tests done which have came back normal. Any ideas? Im very desperate!

      theres a chart on line that will show you the pain points that are tested for diognoses . but it does have many symptoms .including fatigue ,chronic pain, I B S , headaches, food and drug sensistivetiess ,rashes,dry eyes mouth and nose. 

      what worries me is has anybody thougth of WHY  theres so many ,fibro / and ME sufferers all of a sudden  .

      Yea i have researched it, but im not totally convinced that is what i have because of the muscle waisting im having, my arms and legs are basically just bone and tendons now. I forgot to mention that i also have lost about 3 stone in the last 6 months.

      yea is definitely a cause for concern i have also been noticing A serious increase in the amount of people getting cancer of late!

      hun if your losing that much weight hun see your gp its not right

      and if no joy with him ,see another .

      it could be MS there are several differant types . or could muscular diesease .what ever it is hun you need answers .

      i know the bleeding doctors arent very helpful iv been there myself and with my son .so i know how hard it is to get them to do anything

      my son stands 6ft8 and weighed 9 stone before anything was sorted 

      he was living on creamed cheese and yogart that was all he could keep down .

      i knew what was wrong and even had it confirmed by my reflexologist who also said it was a tightining in his gullet ,i told the doctors  what it was i was just ignored and i was  given the wrong about for several more months before anything was done. it was awful to watch my son drop so much weight and watch him bein gso hungrey and there was nothing i could do . 

      so i do no honest how hard it is to get help ,but please keep pushing its not right hun i know it and you do to .

      i have been to my gp a lot in the past six months and he is very dismissive! Im at my wits end i dont know what more i can do, at one point he said this could all be because of anxiety... like anxiety seriously? I have never shown any indications of anxiety and you would know too look at me that something isnt right! Yea they arent very open to suggestions of what could be wrong with you, they are always right even when there not!

      Insist on a second opinion, and if it is not granted to you then move to another surgery who will take your problems seriously.

      Sometimes doctors seem to be disinterested in our problems, and I put this down to a lack of experience or knowledge concerning our specific problem. 

      The culprits should ask themselves why we have taken the time and trouble to visit them if we are really hunkey-dorey and fighting fit.

      sorry to say this hun but that out bad taste joke seems to apply here 

      doctors bury there dead .see another doctor .

      or aregistered homeopath or both .

      something in your body isent working properly hun .

      can i just ask do use diet drinks . or anything with aspartame in excessive use of this so called safe artificial sweetner can cause the symptoms of graves disease .  for referance to this read the book sweet poisen

      . a case of a child whos mother whos child was vomiting and diroeh constantly ,who had every test done and was told they couldnt find anything wrong with her . 

      told her mum to take her home nothing more they could do . 

      a friend dropping by saved her daughters life by mentioning about aspartame so her mother checked everything she was giving her daughter ,

      like yogarts and desserts drinks cearels and even her capol had it in she ditched all the stuff and fed her all fresh and she regained weight and her symptoms stopped . there are many cases listed in the book . this is deadly stuff although you have to look deeply and hard to find the information .

      another one breifly was of a women days away from having her thyroid removed ,deceided to go home for a few days , heard a radio programme on the subject which also saved her life and her thyroid .

    I think that you need to go onto health salts daily to clear your system first something like Andrews in the UK or you can get cheaper like Superdrug health salts. Then you need  to do some very gentle exercises daily to get your system going again helping you muscles and fatique, even though it is difficult do them sitting down at first. If you find you get a spasm then stop and do them even gentler. I get spasms and I know they are not nice. Your stomach pain when eating I think you need to see your GP you can usually only tell them about one or two things at a time to get some relief and treatment from them.

      your laugh at this suggestion. but iv known many people who have suffered for years with constipation and after several weekly treatments of relexology there body has started working properly ,then they just need to go once amonth . 

      when i had regurlar reflex my fibro was so much better ,but my lady retired and living in a very small town no one replaced her . even though i have acupunture which helps a bit with my symptoms ,

      iv definatly been a lot worse since not having a reflexology

      .give it a go .

      one lady i knew suffered from constipation which sounds very much like yours she had suffered from a child and had tried allsorts

      .at 57 and after 7 weekly treatments her body started working properly .she just goes once a month now .

      homeopath will also be agood bet a registered one they treat the whole person not just the symptoms .

      but if constipation is your main problem honest loads of people use reflexology for this and have excellant results . .

      I know someone who used to go once every three weeks. He then married a vet and she put him on special diet (not a horsey one) and he bacame  very regular until they divorced and he went back to his old ways.

      Hay there (notice the pun) Tis, now that is a very manure (sorry I mean 'mature') statement.

      I can't imagine anything being more 'smelly' than being married to a Vet, and just think where those hands might have been!!

      In my county they would say, 'up t'rear end o'an oss'. lol

      So do I but it is like American medicine ....how will you be paying? Their facilities are usually marvellous.

      Our dogs had human illnesses, breast tumours, strokes, arthritis and epileptic fits. Plus an added benefit, if we can't cure your terminal illness we can stop your pain forever....

      Actually my friends Vet wife did once operate on their child in an emergency when abroad.

      we have paid for a free health service with 2 world wars and generations of taxes . and we are owed a decent care and support .

      in fact vets can operate on humans ,but not the other way round .

      vets do 7yrs training doctors 4 yrs i think . i know a vet does more simply because he has a wider range of care to deal with  after all  a budgie isent in any way shape or form anything like a dog .
