Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

i hope you feel better soon, and are able to pull together the resources needed to obtain some magnesium soon too, while you wait for specialist appointments to roll around. even stress of any kind, physical or emotional, contributes to magnesium depletion. magnesium is essential for the transport o...

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

this page provides info on an array of potential causes for peripheral neuropathy, which could be linked to some of your symptoms. for whatever it's worth, it is a fact that at least part of my own scenario is peripheral neuropathy and not central, even though everything was happening at once during...

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

just because the docs aren't necessarily trained to test for or interpret potentially key info, certainly should not be taken to mean you're a hypochondriac. sadly, it can mean that your real life day-to--day experiences end up in the 'subclinical' round file. i would not recommend waiting for thing...

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

please take heart. although very frustrating, it can be seen as truly good news that your MRI was fine. if you are interested in approaching your various symptoms from a nutrient-depletion perspective, there could be some very safe and straightforward next steps to take right now, with no immediate ...

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

ok here are some first thoughts: RF is not in my wheelhouse thyroid numbers in my very limited xp are going to be decidedly OUT of range if a prob.

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

great, we'll look forward to updates! :) if it's any comfort, normal is just stats normal.

Re: No one knows what's wrong with me.

awesome! ok so rheumatoid, thyroid, cbc, crp, iron/tibc, hemoglobin, uric acid, hemoglobin, vit d3, vit b12, lipid panel plus a couple others. great start! there will likely be some useful action items from those results. if possible at a future date, would be great to see serum zinc and serum magne...
