My whole life I have constantly had a cold, virus, stomach bug, you name it. It’s like my immune system hates me. I’m 35 years older and after having my two kids it’s like my immune system took an even bigger tank. In the last year alone I’ve had Diverticulitis TWICE (once I was hospitalized for), COVID-19, The Flu, Strep Throat, Gastritis, I’m currently on my 7th (yes I said 7th) Sinus Infection and awaiting a CT scan of my sinuses from the ENT. I also suffer from PMDD, horrible mensural cycles, migraines, bloating, sensitive skin (break out to almost any chemical I touch), and I’m not even going to get into my normal aches and pains in my body. In my life I’ve had almost every test ran on me. From extensive blood work, CT scans, MRI, X-rays, spinal tabs, hospital stays after hospital stays, seen so many specialists and they all agree that something is going on but they are not sure what the root of the cause is. They’ll say, “go see this specialist”. And I do, then they say, “yup something is wrong. You need to see a different specialist.”
I’m at my wits end. I am at a point now where if anyone or any doctor says “hey this might work” I’m willing to try it. It’s effecting my life to the point where I can’t hold a normal job because I will get so sick every few weeks that I can’t leave bed. People look at me like I’m a hypochondriac and just faking it, but trust me, I’m not. I hate this! I just want to be normal, healthy, and get some damn answers!!! It’s the unknown that bothers me so much!
Has anyone had this happen to them? Any ideas of what to try? Who to see next? HELP!!! I’m desperate to just be normal again.
