I have posted on other forums cause I guess I was in denial. I have been dianosed several times in my life with mental illness labels. I am a 52 years old women. I have always been a high achever. I do believe I am high strung. And that my depression which has come and gone for years is gentic.
I am going thru a real bad time right now and would like some advice and or support.I truely believed I had MS and all the systems. I have 2 members of my family that have it.. I hate the electrical shocks that I keep having. I have had every nero test in the last 6 months
2 Drs have said it is an anxiety disorder. I went to a new Dr at my husbands request and he is getting my paperwork from the other Drs. He was honest with me and said that it seems that I do have a stress disorder. I am now walking with a cane cause my balance is off and have feeling of not being there( I guess light headness_) I have allergys and have had all my life. I fall alot. In the last 7 months i have went from a very hard worker with alot of activty to an almost invalid , I guess thatI no longer know what stress is suspossed to be. they tell me I have had it so long I don't reconize it any more. I went from Cymbalta to Seroqual. (new Dr) He started me on the lowest dose to stop the shocks that go thru me. Cause i can't take them anymore and am getting desprate.
I need to mention that I also went to an allergy and ear nose and throat specialist and he thought it was generiized anxiety disorder too. I have had an MRI of the brain, with in normal limits. eng which showed something wrong on left side but dismissed because it didn't show on MRI. He was an **s hole!! Wouldn't take the time to discuss anything with me and sent me to the nero Dr. I know how to relax and meditate, I put on soothing music whien I go to bed. I live in the country and have animals. I stop and smell the roses so to speak. So what now. We are so far in the hole cause of all the dr bills. I don't think I can afford a new diet. Help please....
