Avatar f tn After visiting nearly half a dozen doctors and none of them knew what I had. Conclusion is that this is more nutrition and this is probably why doctors can't figure it out because they aren't nutritionists. And so I started experimenting with vitamins and health activities.

Avatar f tn Today I went for a lower back MRI and had a hard time holding still because of feeling crampy and cold. All of the docs say it is a coincidence that any of my problems started shortly after receiving the implant. I have sent blood in for the Melisa test, but wonder if a reaction will show being I was not able to refrain from using inhalers for five days.

Avatar m tn so to speak that I can tell of. It's been going on longer, but less noticeable, now since I do not talk sleeping meds any more, it's all that I can notice...
