Poorly wired?

I've gotten progressively worse over about a period of five years. I've had trouble breathing, especially while I sleep, for years. My throat feels swollen, and I'm always getting respiratory ailements, like bronchitis, sore throats, etc.

I've had all sorts of diagnosis, including asthma, allergies, Vasomotor Rhinitis, atopy and systemic candidista to name a few. I have been treated for all of them. None of these treatments have worked.

I recently returned from the Mayo clinic, to which I turned to as a last resort. They didn't tell me anything new, they just smuggly told me I have asthma, and prescribed several thousands of dollars worth of medication, all of which I've tried before.

Now, I don't know what to do. I've tried everything and come up with nothing. I have simply given up seeking medical treatment, and I believe I will just have to live with my poor health. As a result of my breathing problems, I can't even leave the house in the winter, and I live in a very cold climate (Eastern Canada).

But you know what really burns me? What really *****s me off? The attitude of the doctors. How almost without exception, they all shared one thing in common. They did not even let me finish reading them my list of symptoms I had prepared (I never went to a doctor unorganized) before they had made a diagnosis, which they would refuse to go back on even if I told them something which cancelled out their diagnosis. For instance, after one of the countless doctors diagnosed me with asthma, I pointed out that I had tried almost every asthma medication available in the western hemisphere and none of them had helped me. But they just sit there, write me the prescription for the same ******n inhaler every time, then mumble something about coming back in a month for another appointment. This has happened to me more than a dozen times over the years for asthma diagnosis alone.

So I'm at the end of my tether. I guess I just have to accept my life for what it has become.

  • This is the original poster. I forgot to add something to my post.Some people might be wondering why I entitled the post 'Poorly wired'. This was the diagnosis I was given by one particular doctor, who likened my nervous system to a computer. He told me I was just poorly wired, that my nervous system wasn't sending the right messages to my nose and throat, where my problems were.Go figure that one out.:\

  • Thanks to me and not all those nasty doctors, one of whom went next door for a consultant so they could both laugh, I'm still alive and free, looking a lot better than anyone could imagine from my history. I kept myself alive for years with vitamins, chemical free food, more or less, a clean house and a refusal to lie down and die. I had symptoms from ***l, ever decending. I felt like I was 90 years old. I studied constantly to keep on my feet. Two doctors and a few therapists eventually helped me, but they were doctors of homeopathy, bioresonance, and Chinese medicine. Not a drug in sight. A chiropractor, a rolfer, a craniosacral therapist and a couple of energy healers also figured.My first clue, in my 20s, was a magazine article on candida. I'd been complaining about it for 15 years, but it wasn't a 'disease' then. With my experience I didn't bother to ask the doctor about the article so I could get the drug that kills it, I just went off carbs for 6 months and got rid of it that way. Most complaints vanished, but I had ulcerative colitis by then and ended in emergency surgery a few years later. I wasn't in the US by then. To recover, I was sent to a local doctor practicing energy medicine. I first heard of 'Vietnam syndrome.' I found I had a certain set of parasites and a lot of severe imbalances resulting from years of emotional and environmental stress and lack of social support. These were fixed and I got better. Later I went to a school of healing for a few years and learned about the real meaning of 'bad wiring'. I still have plenty of problems, living a high stress life, but I don't have too many problems for long--- as they come up I send them off. I also learned homeopathy (on my own) and use that very well when that seems easiest. I have pretty much given up on vitamins because of contaminants, sometimes proudly listed in the ingredients!I recommend making sure you don't have something like a parasite, there are so many and easy to get, there are lots of parasite remedies in homeopathy and montmorrillonite clay also helps. A good diet helps, getting your skull balanced helps, giving up on cosmetics and household chemical products helps loads. I bathe with borax and cool water, even hair (rinse with citric acid), do laundry with borax and washing soda and household chores with those plus ammonia and hand made soap. Anything to avoid a chemical overload that can lead to undiagnosible problems. No packaged food or white flour, as they are loaded with crud of every sort, including additives like msg and alloxin that cause diabetes and colorants and preservatives that cause asthma or anything else.To survive and thrive is possible. No need to donate charity to another MD again!
