What's wrong with me?
Hi Babyblue34f. I'm so sorry you're going through all this.
Some of these doctors should get off they high thrones and start dealing at the level of their patients, with some more understanding for their suffering.
Being reliant on labs alone, is a huge disservice to the patient when clinical findings and symptoms with pain and suffering are ignored.
This is plain rubbish!
If there's a good thing here to mention, it is the lack of effective treatment
available, aside from maintence drugs.
So these two negatives cancel each other out in a way, should you suffer from let's say seronegative arthritis-or whatever the exact diagnosis would be.
It is my opinion that there's an undelying low grade infectious condition, along with other co-factors present, leading to your condition.
You can do a serch here under "Dr. Garth Nicolson", who is the top expert in infectious conditions underlying FMS, CFS and other serious syndromes
He 's also a part time MedHelp contributing expert.
On your own, you can self test for low thyroid function by doing Dr. Barnes
Basal Temperature Test, which in your case, may have to be done over a much longer time, to ride out any active phases of the suspected low grade infection. Just do a search for it. Sould you get a consistent reading
basal body temperature below normal (36.5–37.5 °C or 97.7–99.5 °F are considered normal levels), barring an active phase of infection, your thyroid function would be considered low (hypothyroid).
Also, you may look into MSM, Boswellia Serrata, Coconut oil, low carb alkaline diet, apple cider vinegar , which all can be very important elements of a therapeutic approach you can implement on your own.
I have experience with all of these, both in research and application,
however, my suggestions and comments are only for educational
purposes and not intended as a substitute for medical advice.
Please research these well and then you may let me what you think.
The details are very important, should you decide to apply any or af these
and I would be glad to help you with that.
