Check into autoimmune I had all the "normal" results on every test my doctor could order. My doctor ordered on one trip 11 blood test, the nurse was afraid to do 11 blood draws in me LOL I told her that my doctor was on a scavenger hunt. He eventually tested my antibodies.

Hi there Kspitzke my RAI lil sister :) I hope you are doing well, and I am glad you are on your way to getting better. I am super sorry you have had so many challenges. I felt so bad when I read you had been to the ER so many times. This all messes with our emotions. Try to sleep often as you need it- the natural chemicals and hormones that help us keep o...

Heya love! Welcome to the club. You paid your dues, you're in my club :) I had RAI on Feb 10th after a grueling 21 days of no meds. I thought I wouldn't make it. I cried a lot, miserable, pain, felt awful, brain was jello...then pudding. I totally understand how you might be feeling. I have been back on my meds for 3 weeks and count...almost 4 w...
Welcome to the community :) I just went through some of what you and your wife are going through. If I can help in any way, just send me a message. She should do really well. Being told cancer is in charge of your life and body is never fun. If you get an excellent surgeon then she will be well on her way to being healed and getting back to being in contr...

The school tried one label, then another...finally the school psychologist figured it out...both my sons were being impacted by a Sensory Integration Disorder, commonly misdiagnosed as ADD or ADHD. All of these disorders ...
