Hi everyone, I used to be on this forum a couple of years ago but due to some bullying on another forum I suffered a mini breakdown and disappeared for a while. I'm now back but my health has got worse.
I suffer from Emphsema, Bronchietasis,Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, double scoliosis and a few other health problems. I had a MRI scan before Christmas on my back after fighting to get one for 15+ years. I had MRI scan and got the results and the doc looked at me and asked how am I still walking as she reckons I need surgery on my back as it is so bad.
Anyhow I'm still waiting for a hospital appointment and nearly every morning I wake up paralysed from waist down. The other problem is I have noticed my breathing is getting worse, it's like there is no air and I'm having problems breathing. Sometimes it hurts just to breath. Someone told me it could have something to do with my back (curve at top of back) pressing on my chest. My Emphysema doctor won't see me as he says I should just use my inhalers and the paper bag technique.
Has anyone any advice, I'm fed up with docs not listening. It took them about 9 years to diagnosed B12 definicity, by that time I kept falling over as I felt so weak. It was only when this new doctor did some blood tests on me that he found my B12 levels were dangerously low.
I was diagnosed with Emphysema in 2011 after a bout of pneumonia which the docs at first said it was a chest infection and since then my health has taken a downhill turn.
Sorry for waffling.
