Sandi wrote:I need some supportive advice as what to do next in my search of putting a name to my illnesses. I'm a Type I Diabetic (14 yrs.) on the pump, last summer 2012 I started experiencing sever hot flashes, mood swings, with severe muscle tightness in my legs, also right eye pain. After my OB did hormone testing my test came back completely hormone depleted except for testosterone. The Dr was so shocked she made me wait a few more months thinking this couldn't be right, five mo later symptoms were worse, and was diagnosed with Uveitis. My OB did the test again and this time showed 0 across the board I stopped making LH, FSH, Progesterone and Estogen completely. She put me on HRTs at age 37. I have always. Even active I run, take spin classes, weight exercises etc. By the time Nov came I started hvg problems getting up from a seated position the fatigue and pain were so severe during the day I lived on caffeine. The Rheumo thinks I have fibromyalgia. I tried asprin to help with the pain because Naproxen or flexeril were helping. Bayor Apsrin Back and Pain were the only drug that helped with the fatigue. I and an MRI done that showed a white matter lesion on the Frontal lobe. They put me on Methotrexate for my Uveitis. I have horrible dizziness when driving and sometimes feel as if thi gs are moving, when they are not. Do I need to see if I actually have MS? My symptoms are getting worse especially if I have to go off my Asprin regimine. Please any advice. Thanks

I had to stop taking aspirin because now I have Barrett's Esophagus. Because
I had to get off Aspirin my symptoms came back
Ten fold. The newest symptom is my ability to use my vocal cords.
Because my blood sugars are ok, my pancrease doesn't
Make any insulin). I was told none of these auto
autoimmune issues hv anything to do with my insulin dependent diabetes. The amazing thing
I can't stand the pain, so I started taking aspirin Monday night. My vocal cords are better and I'm not so exhausted and sore during the day. The reason I need a dx if it is ms so of the meds I'm on aren't helping the illness.
Thats why I would like to know. Thanks for your responses.
