I am a 33 year old women I have been sick since March 2007. It started when i had pain in my back and had a cough. I went to the walk-in clinic they did a chest xray. It came back as be having a apical bleb in my right upper lobe of the lung. Also that I had extensive emphysema.They sent me for a Ct Scan no contrast also.My doctor then sent me to a pulmunary doctor they did a Alpha 1 Antitricin test that came back negative. My breathing test where a little below normal but pulmunary said he didn't think it was Emphysema . Back in 1994 I had had a Spontanous Phnomothorax on Left side the they went in and staples off the blebs and then the right lund claspsed so they went in a stapled off the blebs. So pulmunary said he was more concerned about blebs not Emphysema. I told him that my lungs feel like they are burning. He said they shouldn't feel like that and he would follow up in 1 year. Then my legs started feeling weakness and under my arms were swollen and lower back by tail bone and behind my knees I went to see my doctor and she said they were lyph nodes so she did blood work to check my thyroid.cbc. hormonesl llyme disease.lupus,rumuthoid athritis. sent me for MRI for MS. All Negative. She sent me to get lymph nodes biobsy and the doctor said they were not nodes they were glands and it felt like fluid.Then I felt pain and pressure when lying on my right side whent to see here again she said she felt something so she sent me for a bone scan that cam back negative. Then she sent me for a ultra sound on my liver,spleen,kidneys,aorta,pancreas that came back normal.I spoke with here yesterday and she said she is not sure what to do.I an so tired all the time night sweats, I look like a bloated balloon . my skin feels tough. I have no Idea what to do. Any ideas please help

  • Dear Crystal...Find information on NAET/Bioset therapy...It is a form of accupressure and it works!! No matter what your "diagnosis" is.I was having ALL of your symptoms and more!! Even the night sweats.Since my treatment, my symptoms have disappeared and I am no longer taking pain meds or Xanax to control my anxiety.The western docs will send you all over and the tests reveal nothing...been there, done that.Many people in this forum have suggersted this treatment. I was desperate so I went...best move I ever made...locate a practicioner in your area and go...you will not regret itBe well....mommy cat

  • Dear Crystal, Its kind of weird I almost thought that I was reading my medical history, I also have had many.... tests, near as the pulmunoligist can tell me is tat I have Bullous Empysema, so I really don't know. All I know is that since my hysterectomy I have had the most excruciating burning pain in my lungs, yet the last CT scan (with dye) was normal, other than the emphysema, and the first X-ray that I had after my hysterectomy was better than the previous ones I was told (odd, huh) I do believe that I am a medical mystery as you are you. Also my daughters seem to cough up blood every time they near their periods and no one can explain that one either???? Maybe some day they will get it . at least I hope so.

I have no Idea what to do. Any ideas please helpI am going to ask you a question. Have you ever used the Gardasil vaccine? If so then you are experiencing the symptoms of this vaccine- first go to VAERs- google it - and submit the complaint- then go to yahoo groups and locate letstalkaboutgardasil or truthaboutgardasilthis vaccine has done a lot of damage from death to mental retardationMerck the owner of the vaccine and now under fire by the groups mentioned above- have disclosed in 2009 that the vaccine causes Rheumatoid Arthritis, pulmonary embolisms, and the victims have suffered from erratic blood pressure, feminine issues in the woman's organs, and all kinds of issues ranging from tail bone issues to fainting and seizures ( vomiting, headaches, sleep apnea, etc... the list goes on and on)When you go to a doc. they have no clue and will say it is in your head- it also causes mood swings and depression- it seems to be causing a lot of aged people's issues and I have wondered if it did not tamper with the hormones! ( causing menopausal issues- all of the above!)The rheuamtoid, juvenile and reactive arthritis that Merck ADMITTED this vaccine causes - has led to Celiac's Disease- where you cannot tolerate foods! Thus a very special diet is sometimes helpful. Anyway- go to the "moms" of the Gardasil girls on the yahoo groups if you took this vaccine and if you don't know then find out if you were ever given this vaccine because the marketing for this was VERY aggressive! hope this helped- if not let me know please!

  • Anyway- go to the "moms" of the Gardasil girls on the yahoo groups if you took this vaccine and if you don't know then find out if you were ever given this vaccine because the marketing for this was VERY aggressive! hope this helped- if not let me know please!BTW the girls reacted VERY differently. And it is probable that infertility is also a side effect- a damaged pituitary gland? resulting also in no periods! so you see how I said the side effects seem old people related? Heart attacks? in a 9 yr. old?Pulmonary Embolisms? in a 18 yr. old?Loss of period? that is menopause! in a 14 yr. old?infertility ??? and then the constant daily issues that lead one to go from one doc. to the next with no real answers! Not all girls suffered the same effects! it is going to be different just like when you take any poison- some get this list of symptoms- some that list of symptoms- because we differ in blood type, body type, fat make up, etc... all contributing factors to how poisons affect us but they are ALL bad- for EVERYONE. stay away from the following poisons- sucralose/ splenda or any little packet containing this insideaspartame/ acesulfame, aspartic acid, or any little packet containing this inside ( they change their names so no one can find the poison! a bit like finding waldo!) BTW aspartame is not in Asia so don't think that by eating Asian you are diving from the North American poisons!polysorbate 80 ( in ice creams!) google - grosspolysorbate 60 google gross microwaves ( they kill and alter enzymes and do not allow you to process proteins either which are discarded in the stools unused! as is plastic- tho plastic has also been found adhered to the stomach wall via ultrasound!) hydrogenated oils- google that it is gross! keep the list of ingredients low on any label and if you can scout out a farm delivery service from your local area- google - it is a bit more money but will be more profitable in the future - you are number one and deserve the best and not poison! How cheap is it to be sick and ailing all the time?same with meds- use super foods instead- google AFNOR quality herbals and use those- buy a desk reference and LEARN and READ to stay healthy the best way - the natural way ditch synthetics= they are making you ill.
