Ok, where do I start?!
I have alot of health problems and I am not too sure where to turn now. I am constantly tired, I hardly ever feel good, migraines, stomach/digestive issues, and every month or two I go anywhere from 3-5 days of not sleeping due to insomnia.
1. I have food and some enviromental allergies. I am allergic to shellfish, eggs, dairy (not just lactose, all dairy) some fruites and highly sensitive to gluten; therefore I have a vegan and gluten free lifestyle. Although I feel alot better when I watch what I eat I still have problems such as frequent nausea, severe gas to the point I am unable to move, the feeling of rocks sitting in my stomach, crampy pain, constipation and bloating. Allergy specialist?! CHECK! gastrologist?! CHECK!
2. My ears. I have constant pain in my ears. I have had multiple operations on my ears since I was born, since feburary I have had 3 more and I will be heading into my 4th with in a few weeks. My ears cause me alot of pain, head pain, pain behind the eyes I am aware that some of it is from the surgeries and nerve damage. Ear specalist?! CHECK
3. I have stage 4 (severe) Endometriosis. I get sick when I am on my period, gain anywhere from 5-10lbs without switching my diet and get horrid cramps. I have had surgery for this as well. The endometriosis has spread to my bladder. Endometriosis specialist?! CHECK
4. Depression, anxiety, insomnia, bipolar disorder,cancer,crohn's, diabetes runs in my family. (along with many other help problems)
My doctors do communicate with eachother. I have been going to my ear specialist for 21 years (since I was born), I havent seen my gastrologist in years (i had pyloric stenosis when i was younger) but should be seeing him within the next week. I have seen my endometriosis specialist for the past 10 years, the one thing we all have in common?! No one knows what to do!!!!!! I feel so defeated, exhausted and hopeless. Ive been on every antibiotic, ive tried so many things and I am begining to feel like a hypochondriac and a lab rat. Any suggestions!
