Customer Question

I'm suffering constant dizziness and entirely bedbound and I'm understand Bly extremely distressed , also painful muscle spasms , painful feet but worse is the dizziness as with it I get a swaying sensation and this has been going on for,over a year now and getting progressively worse
I've had m r I and numerous tests and Drs just don't know wht is causing it all , as I became unwell when my dog did I wondered am I experiencing neurological symptoms as a part of distemper and have kept reading about it, I have no medical knowledge and seem to have misunderstood , so that leaves me in my present state and I'm becoming more more distressed

Hi again. Let's start of by your telling me all the tests and studies you've had so far.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Had m r I
Blood tests , many !
Neurological tests
Even psychiatric assessment and all concluded no mental health probs but understandably distressed
My dr calls it unexplainable and that leaves me with no hope as there is no treatment tht can help me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK--let's check a few things here

Antinuclear antibody, Rheumatoid factor, sed rate, C reactive protein

EBV viral titer

Thyroid panel

AM and PM Cortisone levels

B12 and vitamin D levels

Magnesium levels

CBC, iron, and transferrin

Have you had all of those?

My feet are so painful and especially inflamed on heels
I really. Don't. Want to live like this , a, I'm such distress

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
And what exactly have all these doctors said to you Eve?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They just say it's medically unexplainable
I e told them the distress I'm in and even. Tried an overdose a month ago
That's why I was looking at distemper and wondering did I have that which was a frightening thought too
Feels like my life is over and no one knows wht is wrong with me
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well Eve I do think I know what might be wrong but are you sure all those tests I mentioned have been done?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not sure about the anti nuclear one
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Any idea what your TSH level was? And you did have the EBV viral titer?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Dr told me viruses were checked for
I would,have to ask Dr about the tests you mention
I can't believe I'm left just suffering like this
I'll have to get back to you after speaking to Dr
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
