I'm not sure if this the correct board to place this (if not, mods please move) anyhow, I was diagnosed with adult onset asthma in 2006 and was prescribed Advair, Zyrtec allergy tablets and an inhaler- since '06 my asthma has gotten progressively worse, I have had Bronchitis 4 times in just two years ( I am a non smoker) and following each episode of this I never had a cold or any other illness, basically no rhyme or reason why I keep getting bronchitis!
In the year of 2009 I developed severe migraines and was prescribed just 10 mgs of Sumatriptan- which did nothing for me, my partner on the other hand went in to see his physician for headaches and was prescribed 800 mgs Ibuprofen and 50 mgs Sumatriptan! My physican told me my only other option besides the 10 mg of Sumatriptan that he prescribed me was a cat scan to which I cannot afford! but regardless- I dipped into my partners meds ( I know I shouldn't but was desperate) and found that neither 800 mgs Ibuprofen nor 100 mgs Sumatriptan did absolutely anything for my migraines. I've now had to quit working as the pain is too great.
This summer I developed mysterious low blood sugar and even though I eat beforehand my blood sugar will dip extremely low and I will get sweaty, dizzy, craving sugar and water and feel slightly ill to my stomach. It makes no sense because I have eaten before I have these episodes.
I cough all night and wake up exhausted, I have migraines at least 3 times a week, I'm fed up because I'm tired of being sick and I feel that all that the doctors do is put a bandaid on my symptoms without getting to the root of the problem (s). I feel like I get NO HELP and I'm just tired of it all.
Btw: My physician keeps telling me my bloodwork is fine, hard to imagine really with all the numerous problems I've been having since '06!!
Does anyone have an suggestions for me as I'm at my wits end! I've also tried consulting with a naturopath in my area but my insurance doesn't cover care for a naturopath. I don't know what else to do.
and thank you for reading!
