I have never in my life thought so much could go wrong at the same time.
I have a TBI, which got worse with each of my two pregnancies, I had the worst luck of incompetent doctors not believing me for a long time, actually had me convinced I was making it all up until it was proven they were wrong, my thyroid symptoms went untested for over a year and the endo doctor was unimpressed at how long it took to see him, because I'd had nodules forming and one had to be surgically removed.
He recommended I never go back to previous doctor I was given Synthroid and it's been a battle back and forth over the years and my problems just keep coming.
I've got IBS, allergic to peanuts and soy (food allergy not anaphylactic) peanut slightly higher, dairy intolerance, constipation, high blood pressure, bad circulation, I feel a small though I'm completely depleted and the mere thought of even getting out of bed in the morning is enough to make me feel physically exhausted.
My hair falls out, I've suffered from being so overheated at all times I can't even sweep my floor without sweating. I have a thermos if I've water with me at all times and it's refilled constantly, my sense of taste and smell is so powerful I can literally know exactly where the source is and others don't even smell it until I point it out, often not even then. It gets so intense I get nauseous and get physically weak if it's too loud or powerful.
I have sensitive skin, the last year or so my heart and pulse, and chest pressure becomes overwhelmed over the smallest of things and it's debilitating by way of controlling.
I can't even go to the gym and work out because immediately upon physical activity these issues begin and promptly become worse. Imagine, as I get low blood sugar often, the effects that follow from bottoming out, that is similar to what I ho through.
I am unable to take a walk around my block without running out of breath, sweating and feeling so hot my body trembles and I cannot stand as I'm so dizzy and I feel nauseous and even drinking ice water does nothing to calm things down. Actually I'll get dry heaves and my stomach will start twitching and my IBS will kick in.
It's so overwhelming that even when I rest to feel better it takes a good amount of time to get to breathing and feeling not out of breath. The experience will exhaust me for days.
I've been told by doctors that they know something is wrong and they feel it's more than one thing working together and yet nothing is concrete.
I have lost track of my initial symptoms because they were initially neurological and attributed to my TBI and the severe complications my 2nd pregnancy brought to the surface as it was explained getting pregnant often causes underlying existing conditions that may or may not have eventually become problematic. Until my horrible experience started 13 years ago I was in no medication, saw a doctor a son needed, felt great, my life was literally go go go... nobody understood how I managed but my motto was when others said WHY, I would say WHY NOT!..
I was a PTO member, soccer mom, worked full time, a single mother, daughter had dance, ballet, Girl Scouts, I was the troop leader, volunteered at the school, always with friends and I was healthy and happy.
With the dude effects of medicine today and considering I take
I take Linzess, miralax, Synthroid, Effexor, welbutrin, adderall, klonopin, Ambien, lisinopril/HCZT, for the variety of problems, I'm fairly certain that some of these problems could have been avoided.
However, I'm left to wonder if my TBI, which as confusing as it may sound I'm not educated as to the exact effects it causes as the hospital I went to cannot seem to even read the results accurately and my specialist who finally gave up on the place are all gone and I'm left in the balance.
I have right frontal lobe damage I was in a coma and defied all odds of making it through. I was 10 and my brain adapted until my 2nd pregnancy and nothing I mean nothing has gone right since.
Does anyone think my TBI may possibly be tricking my body from proper blood results? I'm so desperate right now and mh doctors nurse notified me Friday that the many blood tests I asked him to run on me my auto immune part was not normal but no further info was given.
I went to my personal chart online and my lymphocytes monocytes and basofils are high but the neutrophil is low. However for all I know that may not be significant by way of explaining any of my problems.
If anyone has any suggestions as to if my thyroid is the issue of my brain malfunction is making stuff up but still making the symptoms real to me or if there are suggestions of results coming back within the wide range of medical normal but still an indication of concern.
It seems my body is at a plateau and my digestion issues often swell my stomach to become as swollen as 6 months of being pregnant and I eat very little yet I cannot lose weight.
I eat to live I don't live to eat.
I overcame both eating disorders, overcame nearly killing my organs, through therapy I went from begging for diet pills at 108 lbs. ordering diet pills from another country, getting ripped off of hundreds, I was contacted by board of customs because they intercepted my illegal order, worked to be comfortable at 150 lbs and now I weigh 180 lbs of swollen and uncomfortable weight that is unexplainable and won't go away.
I'm considering plastic surgery for my stomach area but don't know if it will work.
Somehow I feel there are others out there who are experiencing the same as I am and perhaps they were lucky enough to have a doctor who listened and found them answers.
Or even if my story helps someone else realize they aren't crazy and then aren't alone even if it seems like their many different symptoms are not possible to happen to one person at the same time.
I had eclampsia with both pregnancies and as weird as it sounds my symptoms after the second one did not subside as doctors expected. I'm also on SS disability because of my TBI.
I'm turning to essential oils as we speak and just waiting for then to be delivered.
I'm willing to try anything and everything to feel better. My life is a very bad rerun and I'm only 39.
Thanks for any suggestions and for just taking the time to read my message.
