December of 2008 I presented to the doctors with abdominal pain radiating up my right side. It took 5 rounds of antibiotics and dozen of tests before they figured out I had a massive uterine infection that spread to my bladder and kidneys. Apparently my normal WBC threw them off an infection. 3 days I.V antibiotics and another 10 days oral antibiotics before it cleared up. That was in the middle of February 2009 2 months after origannly going to the dr.

After that I had menstural bleeding for 4 months straight with no break. I went back to the Dr. in May due to the fact I was still bleeding and had lost 17 lbs since January when I was 138lbs. They said not to worry and my system will regulate on it own. I returned the the Dr. at the end of September due to another 10lb weight loss, chronic fatigue, joint pain, and dizzyness.

They dr. ordered some new blood tests. A week later I went to the ER with a rapid HR (150 bpm) and shortness of breath. EKG showed Sinus Tachycardia. The on call Dr. took one look at me and told me I was anorexic and to go home and eat despite the fact that I injest 2800-3400 calories daily.

In November I went to my Dr. for my blood results. All that showed up was a 5X the normal limit of HS C-Reactive Protien. He reffered me to a endocronologist for auto immune testing. In December I went to see her. She ran a few tests but nothing my Dr. hadnt already run.

I went back for a follow up appointment with my Dr. That is when I found out the endocronolgist sent a letter figuring that despite denying ellicit drug use that was the problem and wished not to see me again. I was furious. She came to this conclusion in a half hour and with nothing to support that. I have never done drugs! I'm thinking test me before handing out an accusation like that.

The only new thing that showed in my blood work was that my WBC and monocytes had dropped from mid range normal in November to below normal in Decemeber. I still have chronic fatigue, muscle pains, dizzyness with some fainting, high HR fluctuating BP usually from normal to low. I get constant hedaches, stomach bloating and my ankles swell. The Dr.s just seem to be sitting on it and not doing a thing. I know something is not right with me. I'm fed up and want to know what is wrong so I can get on the road to feeling better and having the energy to play with my children again. Has anyone had a problem like this?

  • Cold hands and feet are indicative of a hepatic circulation problem. According to m-w.com, 'hepatic' means "of, relating to, affecting, associated with, supplying, or draining the liver."Blood passes through the liver twice - think of this organ as the body's heater. If the liver can't warm the blood enough, it shows up in the extremities first. The hepatic circulation is the flow of blood and lymph through the liver and organs of the digestive, urinary, pulmonary and cardiovascular system. The Edgar Cayce readings describe a primary hepatic circulation between the liver and kidneys which are important organs of elimination. The hepatic circulation also includes other vital organs such as the intestines (hepatic portal), pancreas, spleen, gallbladder, lungs, and heart. When the circulation through these organs is slowed or low in volume, it is said to be "cold." Reading 3721-1 contains an excellent description and definition of cold hepatic circulation. From Edgar Cayce’s perspective, cold hepatic circulation causes or contributes to: Poor digestion and assimilation,Poor eliminations as poorly digested food is passed into the intestinal system, Disturbed circulation, Abnormal acid/alkaline balance, Abdominal symptoms including stomach pain, feelings of heaviness after eating, etc. Unbalancing of hepatic system functioning, primarily the liver, resulting in systemic toxicity and related problems. Edgar Cayce often referred to the primary hepatic organs (liver and kidneys) as poles of the body's battery. In numerous readings he spoke of general debilitation and chronic fatigue as a condition in which the batteries of the body had run down. Thus, many readings which discuss cold hepatic circulation note tiredness and and fatigue as chronic symptoms. Cold hepatic circulation may result from poor eliminations (especially the colon). The system becoming extremely toxic overloads the liver and kidneys (two primary organs of elimination). In an exhausted or overwhelmed state, the hepatic circulation becomes slow or sluggish. Decreased secretions from the liver contribute to intestinal problems (such as constipation) which further exacerbates the deficient hepatic functioning. Internal cleansing through hydrotherapy and diet are common therapeutic interventions for this pathological pattern. Nerve pressures on the centers governing the hepatic circulation is another primary etiological factor in cold hepatic circulation. Manual therapy to relieve the nerve pressure is a common treatment for cold hepatic circulation resulting from somatic dysfunction. (emphasis added)I'm sure there's a lot going on with you. I'm now following a half dozen online forums, trying to help out as many people as I can. If you don't see a response to a followup inquiry it's probably because I didn't notice your question.
