    I now know what's wrong with me!!!

    This morning i was reading the local paper and came across this article!!

    Recognizing the signs of a concussion!!!!

    Symptoms reported;
    Balance problems/dizziness
    Double or fuzzy vision
    Sensitivity to light/and noise
    Feeling sluggish
    Feeling foggy or groggy
    Concentration or memory problems

    I'm taking this article to my Dr. immediately on Monday morning and demand proper treatment!!!

    Geesh! you think they would know these things, and see that all this time i only had a concussion!!!

    Have a nice FALL day!

    Hi Mornignsonshine,

    Don't feel bad hon, It on took almost 25 years to get a dx.of me I did most of my own research and finally brought all my copies of my labs work to my endocrinologist. I had opretty much determined that I had some CFS along with FM and CMPS.

    All my docs before said for years I had a normal TSH and thyroid function. Then, my endo decided after I too did some investigating on my own and went to her, that I had hypothyroidism which helps or should I say worstens many the symptoms. I am now on thyroid meds but still have alof pain, fibrofog, etc.etc. I also have severeosteoporosis.

    Glad you finally figured out your problem. Have you gone to a rheumy yet???

    Warm hugs and God bless,

    Granni (Marilyn)

    Thanks for your sweet reply, but, you do know i was joking don't you??

    I have CFS, some of the causes for me are,
    gluten sensitivity
    mycoplasma infection
    messed up hormones
    low on Vit. B's,
    folate and glutathione

    Those are some of the things my new Dr. has discovered, i went to a rhuemy once, NEVER again!! What a joke
    he diagnosed me with hypermobile joints, and having three boys as my problem.
    He ran ZERO tests, and wanted to pump me full of all kinds of drugs.

    ckball, and khalyal, glad ya had fun with my post!!! ;o)

    Hey Morningsonshine,

    Can you tell I was reading your post really fast and posting a little quickly too.

    Yeah, I guess we all have concussions ! I have had one for a very long time and no one even told me. The BIG problem is they (ALL the docs) never told me much of anything.

    Lots of hugs,

    Sorry, not possible! To have a concussion you must have a brain!! You know we don't have brains! If we did the doctors would believe us when we tell them how we feel!

    Dr. didn't want to see me, he agreed with Greenbean, i have no brain!!!

    SW if the cat and the dog are sleeping on your head, your brain has probably fallen asleep. That would explain the numb tingly feelings!:0)

    Maybe we should all start carrying 2 by 4's to our Dr. appointments!

    Granni, your'e a good sport!!

    Thanks for allowing me to give you all a chuckle, if only it was that easy!!

    Can I sue all my docs. for mis-diagnosing me?lol.
    How long is this concussion supposed to last?lol.
    Because I am blonde will it take longer? lol.
    How does this affect those of us who when they were passing out brains thought they said trains and missed it? lol.
