I am very curious in the dopemine(spelling)factor in various diseases. I've had anxiety since I was about 10 and self-medicated with alcohol not being aware of what I was experiencing at the time.
At the age of 30 I had endo which took a few years of "chasing" doctors down for a diagnosis.
Two years later I had a partial hysto leaving one ovary and am now housebound with panic, anxiety and agoraphobia which I was never fearing of before.
After 3 years of doctors, neurologists, blah, blah, blah, I had a partial hysterectomy leaving me with one ovary.
I can't take anti-depressants they make it worse. I can take a large dose of xanax and feel normal. I don't want to have to take the xanax but can't get pit to see a good Dr. due to the 3 years I spent trying to eleviate back pain, then went from Dr. to Dr. to Dr.....trying to get my life back. Dopemine(spelling)seems to be a big deal in my recovery. I've seen it in many diseases I've checked out and it has a definate portraiance in quite a few diseases.
Instead of going in blindly, panickly and unaware, I would like to know more about this "Dopemine" (spelling). Please...give me some infor...it's been 10 years of "hell" for me!!!!
