My Neurologic condition is rare (Syringomelia) Cystic Tumor Inside Spinal Cord. 8 years now. Then 4 years ago pyloric ulcer perferation that caused my Gastroparesis. Vomited for 1.5 years before diag. Tried many different treatments. Not one has worked and when the doctors don't know how to help you they give up. I am seeing a neutritionist now who was able to do some extensive blood testing and stool testing. Come to find out I'm suffering from severe Malnutrition. No Vit. C, No Vit D, Too much yeast, Sugar levels all over, Cortosol not normal, My entire intestines do not function normal. I feel Like **** every day. Oh is has affected my sleep big time. This is all due to not absorbing food. I'ts killing me slowly. I eat only fresh foods and no wheat, and I blend everything and still not much improvment. I don't know where to go from here. My nutritionist thinks now with everything I have done that my neurotransmitter are not functioning right because of the Tumor in my spinal cord at C4 & C5. If that is the case can it be repaired or WHAT? I'm 5 feet 7 inches tall and the most I weigh now Is 104lbs. My worst was 92lbs. Is there not a doctor out there who is willing to take on a chalange. Because of all of this I have lost my job and my medical insurance. Everything I'm doing is hard when you not have the means. The doctors won't look at you if your not insured, even if your will to pay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I see a chiropractor every week to keep my spine straight, I see an acupuncturest every week, and the neutritionist bi-weekly. Anyone with any sugestions or directions would help.
Love to all

  • Dear Debbie,

    Have you been prescribed The medication, Reglan? There's one other prescription drug available only in Canada; however, as of present, Reglan has very much improved my overall health. Reglan has been a life saver for me! I suffered several years from with debilitating abdominal pain but was diagnosed with anxiety & depression. in addition to other various conditions. I hope this info is helpful.
