Is What This Doc Said Accurate?

Quick history:
- I have had "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" for practically my entire life, which isn't normal because it's not supposed to be childhood onset, so it's probably an undiagnosed something else.
- My son passed away from mitochondrial disease (Leigh's syndrome) almost 2 years ago. He was a couple months shy of his 10th birthday
- Mitochondrial disease can mimic MS and chronic fatigue syndrome, but is hard to diagnose
- There's no definitive ...

I wish I could read an MRI

That's all.

I wish I was a doctor.

I wish I could work out what the hell is going on.

I wish that when I'm at work and my chin starts twitching I knew why.

I wish I knew why my legs suddenly felt as though someone had injected them with lead.

I wish I Knew why everything is going to pot. That's all.

I'm just a bit over it all.

Like completely.

And still ...

As the world’s largest maker of generic drugs, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries has been critical of brand-name manufacturers that try to block generic versions of their high-priced medicines.

But Teva is now emulating its rivals, mounting an aggressive effort to stave off generic versions of Copaxone, its big-selling brand-name drug for multiple sclerosis, which is set to lose patent protection late in May...... Read More -

So I finally got in to see the Neuro... and it was a total waste of my time. He saw the tremors and said "it's really not that bad" and recommended a pill to fix it. Then he compared me to another patient he saw that had "terrible tremors all over her entire body" that were fixed with this pill. He did not attempt to get to the root of the issue, though. Just wanted ...
