my son has many symptoms; are they related?

My son is 21 and keeps getting symptoms that doctors have not been able to help. He does get migraines but feels no pain just loses his vision, he has bad peripheral vision, he sees lines in his vision all of the time, he has advanced gingivitis, he has pain in his Adams apple, his legs hurt when he walks, he gets constipated a lot. He has been to several doctors for the migraines, line vision, and Adams apple. As far as the migraines, the medicines never helped because he does not feel any pain. Optometrists have done different test and cannot find the problem for his line vision. He had several test done at a hospital for the pain in his Adams apple but doctors could not find out what was wrong. He has recently developed pain in his legs when he walks. We do not have health insurance and cannot afford to keep going to doctors when they cannot figure out what is wrong with him. None of these symptoms go away. He's had migraines, constipation problems and lines in his vision since he was a child. He developed gingivitis at least 6 years ago. Adam's apple has hurt for about 3 years. His legs just started hurting when he walks. As his mom, I worry because I can't keep taking him to doctors when no doctor has been able to help. Any suggestions? Please email me if you have any thoughts or suggestions; ***@****. Thanks!

What-ever is causing his problems (did the doctors do an MRI?) he needs to start detoxing.  Eating apples (organic if possible) take toxins out of his body.  Gingivitis is a bacterial disease....he needs to start taking pro-biotics and rinsing his mouth daily with 50/50 solution of hydrogen peroxide/water.
Go to the health food store and buy pH-test strips ($6.00) (he needs to be at 7.3).  Have him also take apple cider vinegar and 2 tbsp of olive oil at night.
Serrepeptase might help his circulation.  Start reading all label of what he is eating.....breads have sodium benzoate, lunch meat has sodium nitrates, etc.  Change his diet and you will change his health

Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What your son is experiencing are probably not the typical ophthalmic migraines but ocular migraines, since these only cause visual symptoms without headaches. Normally, ophthalmic migraines do not require treatment. But if these symptoms recur regularly then one may need medication to reduce the frequency and/or severity of attacks. Consult a migraine specialist.
Regarding pain in adam’s apple and constipation it could be due to exacerbation of the GERD.  It could also be hiatal hernia. Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes. Your son will need to take a combination of medications (under medical supervision) like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole,  lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into by a carbon urea breath test and a combination antibiotic tried. Many a times a persisting H pylori infection can be the cause behind acidity not responding to treatment.
Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Avoid lying down for least 2 hours after food. Maybe these tips will help you.
You should consult a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system) or a physician for this if these tips reduce your son’s symptoms. He may need upper GI endoscopy for confirmation and to know the degree of damage.
Take care!
