Thank you for your reply. I have another appt with rheumatology so I’m hoping they have more to tell me as my doctor has never had anyone with it before. I love her and she is making sure that I get the appropriate appointments. Would a geneticist be able to help any, or is one even needed once a diagnosis has been reached? I told my doctor about the magnesium and she took blood to run today. I do have vitamin d and calcium deficiency even though I go in the sun and eat calcium enriched foods. Is this normal with eds or just another screwy thing with my body. I am so relieved to finally have a diagnosis so I can figure out how to make myself feel better instead of wondering what’s wrong. Best wishes, Ashley.
Blimey, you’ve been through the mill girl! You’ve had the full flavour of how mainstream doctors seem to pay little regard to the blatant signs and symptoms.
Rest assured you’re among friends here. I’m going to repeat something I heard on TV last night, which I thought was very fitting, it went something like:-
“I look upon my friends as a mattress. When I’m hurting, they are always there to help nudge me into a more comfortable position”.
From reading through your experiences, my initial thoughts turn towards magnesium deficiency amongst many other things but, you have to start somewhere and, believe me, every little helps! See if you recognise many of your symptoms in this document:-
