Diagnosed with graves disease in 2001 after having baby, hyperthyroid turned severe hypo about three to four months after getting radioactive iodine pill. TSH almost 100 then. currently on armour thyroid for about three months after coming off of levoxyl for all that time. Had Lower Lumbar fusion about two years ago after finding my back slipped L5/S1 from congenital, slipped during pregnancy. Born with hydrocephalus but no shunt needed and treated for epilepsy until about age 11/12. No symptoms thereafter. Surgery for tonsils, appendix, gallbladder, bladder lift, endometrial oblation, and lost baby during 17 weeks, no findings found with fetus. Before miscarriage, er said they detected blood clot but found none. fell almost a year and a half ago from ladder in garage and hit head terribly hard and contusions to entire right side of body. Two months after my thyroid was low and i contracted Haemophelia influenza B and severe sinus infection at same time. At this time ENT said my written report showed I had a mass in my head but when he got images later, it showed none. He said it was not in my sinus cavit, but it was behind it. Nothing found since. I went to my orthopaedic center for my leg to get it checked on, when my back slipped it trapped a nerve in my right groin and I have permanent meralgia on upper right leg. I have permanent numbness on left leg from heel to buttox and a spot on my upper back, left side (small spot). Recently had three neurotransmitter panels done within last six months done and they all came back bad. 8 of 12 neurotransmitters out of levels, along with hormone panel showing several hormones out of levels as well. Recently fighting infection of mycoplasma, diagnosed mid June. Was put on antibiotic. Went on the 14th for repeat and still have it in my blood. Put on inhaler to help my hurting chest and back. Head hurting so bad that it's almost unbearable now. Neurotransmitter meds gave temporary relief of taking some of the intense pain away but not taken away. My head has been hurting non-stop 24/7, 366 for the last year and a half almost. two neurologists treated it as migraine and didn't do any tests. Had a few MRI and CT done over this time frame. My integrative med doctor is the one who found my issues when everyone else wrote me off but now he cannot go any further to figure out why I have these issues now and what is causing them. He suggested I see a neurologist again but with specific findings. Every doctor has written me off and I'm scared to death now. I'm a Christian but could understand why someone would take themselves out of the equation for the pain and problems I've been dealing with for the last 1.5 years. I cannot afford to keep taking alternative meds and it doesn't seem to work. I am at my witts end and need advice. Can anyone help me? I know I included a lot of information but I have no idea at this point in my life if anything is interrelated. Today my alternative doc put me on steroids, pain/anti-inflammatory meds and muscle relaxers. The doc I went to for my cytoplasma was a walk in clinic near my house since my sickness was causing me problems when i couldn't get to my alternative doc. Someone HELP!
