About Me: Female, 32, Holland, MI, member since Jul 2010
I am a mother of two girls, 2 and 4. A wife of a incredible man who is being deployed in Sept. 2010. I have been having pain, stomach problems, cognitive issues and fatigue for years. Started in highschool and over the last 10 years has gotten unbearable. I went to
[More] my doctor last month (June 2010) she thought it might be fibromyalgia. She put me on neurontin and it didn't do anything but cause more stomach problems. She switched me to Cymbalta and set me an appointment in August 2010 to see a neurologist about Multiple Sclerosis. I am pretty certain that is what I have, but have been brushed off by doctors for 10 years now and I don't have any faith left in them. Hopefully I can have something work for me soon. I found this website and thought that it would be great to track my symptoms.
hey victoria...just checking in to see how you are doing today? i hope your night was relaxing and that you are feeling a bit better today. don't give up on yourself!!!! you know better than anyone that something is not right...keep pushing till you find the answers that make sense to you. for inspiration..just look at how long most of the people on here took to get a diagnosis. good luck victoria!!!
I really hope you keep us informed of what is going on with you. Sometimes doctors have no sense of bedside manner and are only in it for the money and not because they truly care.
I hope that these new tests will find something to stop your suffering. I know that it is hard waiting for that diagnosis, but you have to keep fighting and stay persistant with the doctors that don't want to do anything to help, if you persist then they have no choice but to listen.
Thinking of you
How do you welcome someone to limboland? So sorry you found yourself here, but welcome anyway. Finding this group has helped me to know I'm not loosing my mind. Everyone has been so supportive and encouraging!
