About Me: Female, 42, Atlanta, GA, member since Mar 2013
I am basically 40 (turn 40 on Thursday), I unfortantely have not had great luck with health even though I stay active and am petite. Since the 90's I've had IBS and High Cholesterol with high lipids too. When I turned 30 I was diagnosed with Ostepenia (in my family but
[More] not that young), I've passed 3 kidney stones in less than 10 years. I have dry eye syndrome (Tear level 3). 2009 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis Autoimmune Disease and yoyo all the time on Synthroid or off. In August 2011 I was diagnosed with Barrett's Esophagus Disease w/o Dysplasia as well as Stomach, Antral Type Mucosa w/Regenerative Changes. Reflux on my 48 hour Bravo was so high, I had a Lap Nissen Fundoplacation w/Hernia Repair Jan 2012, ended up with a leak and 7cm bacterial mass near the wrap that had to be surgically drained, emergency and hospitalized with 103 fever and O2 below 70. Finally back on my feet and my reflux comes back but form of Chest Pains. Another Bravo confirmed as well. Had an EGD w/Dilation Jan 2013. Feb 2013 (Last month) ENT consult confirmed I have LPR (Laryngopharyngeal Reflux Disease) as well as MTD (Muscle Tension Dydphonia) in my neck and throat.
I'm not even 40 is what I keep telling myself. I need someone to talk to that understands and can give me suggestions that understands.
