I am a 24 year old mother of two. I have recently been experienceing a lot of health problems. About a year ago, last summer I started having dizzy spells, really low blood suger, fatigue, tired and irritable every day. I started to worry and became very anxious. I would take my blood suger level every couple of hours and it would be low again. So I went to see a doctor. They gave me the glucose drink and drew my blood every half hour. The test came back negative. I don't understand, I was justational diabetic with my first pregnancy and I was positive that is what it was.

Well, weeks later the same symptoms but it got worse. I started getting BV, Yeast Infections and UTI's all the time. They treated those with creams etc. After sticking around awhile the BV finally disapeared but not from the medicine the Doc. prescribed but from a nutri-biotic and some kind of Asadophalus pills. I even had them do X-rays on me because I was feeling pain during intercourse and every time I urinated. They did the x-rays and found nothing. My doc. told me she thought I might have some kind of kink or somthing in my bladder tube?????? So I was scheduled to see a urinologist but have yet to go.

Soon after all that I started getting strep throat. The anti-biotics were not killing it and if it did kill it, the strep came right back again. I had it back to back to back. After so many antibiotics I gave up and tried the nutri-biotics and the strep has not come back. I will not get my tonsils removed in fear of bleeding and being put to sleep. I am also a smoker, who is always in the process of trying to quit! I had strep 13 times this last year and I thought I was dieing!

After the strep came, I came up with a case of hand and foot eczema. This is the wort thing possible. My feet hurt so bad when I walk on them at times where I want to cry. The Eczema is on the softest part of my skin. The soles of my feet and the palms of my hands. Everyone knows me for having soft nice skin and I have never had skin problems before. Where did this come from. I do feel lot's of stress every day but that is nothing new. I know the Eczema has somthing to do with everything I have had or still have. It is like there is some kind of poison my body is trying to expose of or sickness. I just don't know. I now have no health insurance at the moment but I am willing to pay for a good doc. who can help me, out of pocket. I don't know what else to do. Any suggestions or Ideas as to what is going on with me??????

I just want to feel like me again. I am soooooo un-happy because of all these health concerns. I cannot be the best mommy to my children because they see me so stressed out. Thanks ~Heather~
