Hi. I am new here looking for some answers. I don't know if I have been diagnosed wrong, I just can't get the help that I need. First, as long as I can remember I have had depression, hypothyroidism, allergies, ashma, sinus problems, and weight problems. In 2005 I became very sick and didn't know why. I went to a local GI doc and had tons of tests done. It ended up I had Gastroparesis, IBS-D, Gastritis, and I am also fructose intollorant. In 1998 I developed carpal tunnel syndrome and recently it has been very painful. I can not write with a pen or pensil anymore. When I was diagnosed with the GI problems my GI doctor put me on reglan, which ruined my life. One of the side effects were blurry vision, and I didn't know it and they didn't tell me of the danger of this drug. It also causes symptoms like parkinsons. The shaking and unvoluntary movements. Luckily, I never got those. I stopped the reglan just a few months ago and my vision is still blurry. I also have severe dizziness. Now I take antihisimene everyday for my dry itchy skin caused by the hypthyroidism, and also for my sinuses. I have had 5 sinus surgeries. My last one was in 2006. I have been fed up with my GI doctor and am looking for a new one. He thinks I complain to much. Well, my IBS causes horrible daily bloating all day long (looking 8 months pregnant) and painful to. Back pain that radiates down my leg into my foot, extreme gas, and constant diarreah. Now I am taking Questran powder to control the diarreah. Other than that I am not taking anything for the ibs or the gastroparesis. I do not vomit with the gastroparesis at all. I am wondering if the questran is causing this dizziness. I just wish I could find a doctor that would really help me. I am unable to work any longer due to my conditions and mainly the depression. I am in the middle of waiting on disability. Well, thats my story. Any suggestions or help would make me happy!

  • Heythere,i have a couple of the same things you do,but if you find the time please come over to the b12 thread,there are alot of decent people there who can help you out further,but one thing you could do is by starting to take some vitamins and supplements and get your life back,please dont wait on the doctors.All of us at the b12 section order from Iherb.com,give it a shot and you can look into what to order at the b12 site,alot of other guys and girls have the same symptoms as you also and they have taken matters into thier own hands,you dont have to have b12 to join in,so check it out and do some reading by starting at the end and reading backwards,trust me,you will feel alot better once you see what im talking about,who knows,you could be b12 deficient.Im under the name of shortstack over there also,please look into it.Let me know how you make out,i wish you the best,get well soon and take care...
