I appreciate the updates! Let me know,I can go along to see some of these guys with you, if you want- the Muuminator
I like to hear about your updates! Your faithful readers care about you and your daily struggles, so keep the updates comin' girl!
I struggle with adult acne as well, and its just recently started to calm down. I HATE IT!!!! I'm glad to hear that I'm not alone in that battle.
Keep your chin up, sweetie. The girls say hi.
I think we are twins who were separated at birth! haha. I am still dealing with acne, but with all the headache junk, I don't keep up with the creams and stuff like I should ... We've also talked about having me go to a sleep clinic too, just to check that out as a factor. Even if it's not, I've always been a bad sleeper and wake up a few times a night (not to do anything, I just wake up, turn over, and fall back to sleep!)
I hope your new painkiller's side effects aren't too bad... painfree time = incredible time!
Glad you updated :-) I was getting worried about you!!
Thanks for the update. I've been wondering how you've been doing.
I think you're the one who deserves the gold star! My nerves would have been shot after seeing so many doctors.
Thanks for the update. I know what you mean about specialists. Ugh. I just want to be normal. I have dermatological issues too - including dermatitis (sebbhoric, which is like facial dandruff!! lovely) on my face, leaving it red, raw and peeling half the time. And rosacea, the consequence of steroid use to control the dermatitis!
The neurologists have nothing to offer. I really wonder what the heck they really understand. And deep-seated emotional issues? Good heavens - constant headaches cause a lot more deep-seated emotional issues than I ever had before! But I think they are grasping at straws...
Hang in there!!
Ahhh, sounds like you have been busy! I don't know if you have heard this before but there was a lady here in Oz who suffered from migraines badly. She ended up having an operation that blocked the 'pain receptors' so she didnt know if she was even having a migraine.
It seems fairly agressive, but last i heard she was doing well.
i've found a great neurologist~we don't yet have my issues solved but she is determined to stay with it until we do, and she comes recommended by so many~contact me and i'll let you know
I have to say, you've got a great attitude when it comes to dealing with doctors who aren't making tremendous progress in solving your aches. I admire that.
For what it's worth, as frustrating as it is when doctors aren't able to get to the bottom of things and get you better, it's just as frustrating for doctors as well. Nothing makes me feel more worthless and inadequate than having to tell a patient that I don't have a good answer for their problems.
1. I am glad to read the updates!
2. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th opinions are worthwhile. Good call -- sleep clinic is a worthy investment of time. Sleep impacts everything.
3. Do not give up, one day your solution will arrive.
4. Sometimes a new doctor can bring a new perspective.
Good luck -- I'm cheering for you!!
