I am tired of this illness that I find so many others have and the doctors seem to have not clue how to deal with it. Here is a bit of back ground about me and then I will list my symptoms and maybe between you readers out there and myself we can come up with something that will help us live our daily lives. I am a white female and live in Canada. I am over weight and have tried several diets to lose it but I feel it is a family inherited. I am not retired and would like to enjoy my life. I did have veritgo real bad a couple of years ago but since then have it 90% under control. I have no appendix, no gallbladder, had a hysterectomy, have 2 artifical hips.What ever this illness is has complete control over my life as I never know from 1 day to another how I am going to feel and will I be able to do anything so makes it very hard to plan things. My friends don't seem to bother with me as much to because I either can't committ or cancel out on things. It is also effecting my marriage as my husband is fairly healthy. I have had several doctor appointments, had several tests which all come back negative. My family doctor at this point is relating health issues to stress and depression and has tried me on a couple of antidepresent meds which made me feel much worse so stopped taking them. I have had a ulcer and I have in past been diagonised with H Phylori. As with reading many other discussions most of us have had a fair usage of antibotics. Now to let you know how I feel everyday.
I wake up feeling as if I have a bad case of the flu, I am nauseated, tired, feel week, light headed and feel cold and hot. I start my day taking a antinausea medication. I try to eat but at times can not and if I do eat I don't feel well. I either am constipated or have direaha. Depending on the day and what I eat I get stomach spasams in the upper part of the stomach and in the lower part of the stomach I get pains that feel like I am going into labour. My body hurts all over in different places at different times. I get pain at the base of my head that works it way up and then I feel scared that I may be having a stroke. I get alot of indigestion ( made serveral trips to ER thinking I am having a heart attack). Some days I feel real lucky as I can go almost symptom free. I am tkaing medication for high blood pressure, gout and for gerd. Other than that I take some herbal items. There are days I am afraid to leave the house because not knowing what may happen if I am out and about and then there times I want someone around because I am so sick and if I need medical care need someone to be able to call for help. This has been going on for about a year now but the last 6 months things continue to get worse. I think my doctor is tired of seeing me and hearing me complain of the same things but I need some help to be able a have a bit of a quality of life. I recently went to the health store and explained my problems and letting them know what medications I have tried with no satisfaction. We are working on the assumption right now that I have H phylori again as it can come back especially after some usage of antibiotics. I am taking a product from New Roots which is a hospital bacteria probiotic and a product from Classic Series called Mastic Chios Gum. These both come in capsule form and I am to take 1 capsule from each product on a empty stomach 3 times a day for 2 weeks. Once I am finished these I am going to ourchase a product called CHILL which had ingrediants that are suppose to help people with depression. With this I hope to get some sanity but would like to get rid of this illness all together. I am interested in hearing from others in the same boat and what they have tried and if any had any luck in getting at least 30% better which is good compared to feeling the way I do.
