I understand exactly how you feel, Reiki.
Why can’t doctors understand that having answers for why your body is not working properly for you and making you feel so weird and poorly goes such a long way towards feeling better about everything and having a better attitude towards it all?
Treating individual symptoms is ok, so long as they are still working hard on your behalf to try and figure out exactly what is causing these symptoms.
I am lucky in that I may have found some causes of one of my most debilitating symptoms, and now have a supportive team of experts willing to help me re-gain as much quality of life as possible. This has already re-ignited the light at the end of a very long tunnel, and I am feeling cautiously optimistic about some possible improvement in the future.
Had I listened to my Neuro and GP, however, I would now be looking at an infinitely long, dark tunnel with absolutely no light anywhere along it.
I still have a very long way to go to gain any noticeable improvement, and I still have a number of other avenues to pursue, but at least I have some form of hope now.
Never, ever give up, Reiki. You have a right to answers about what is going on with your health right now, so please don’t let anyone fob you off and tell you to stop looking.
Do you have any other medical professionals who would be willing to fight your corner? I was very lucky to have a brilliant physio who, although I am no longer seeing her, has stayed in touch and was the one who pressured my GP into a referral to London. He definitely would not have done that without her persistence. She has also done reports for me for benefits etc, as she knows my situation better than anyone else.
Stay strong, Reiki (which I know you are) and remember - you know your body better than anyone else, and you know when things aren’t right.
Also, if you’re not happy about the medication they are suggesting, go and discuss it with your GP. After all, it is YOUR body and if you’re not happy, then don’t take them.
Lots of hugs and strength, PD xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
