Thank you Marc. I had read through previously and took the chance to read through again. I might need a few more times.
Stavia and Star thanks for the support.
Susan and Ruth thanks to talk as well.
So you'll see quickly I'm a book writer. Now that I've taken a few breaths I have several things for discussion if anyone is up for it.
I've never been regular. Cycle wise. I often suffered from abnormally large cysts on my ovaries. I have been on depo injections for 15 years (with a few breaks) to prevent this and additionally this stopped my cycles completely. Is this possibly a hormone imbalance that's related, and should I have my hormones tested and regulated each year? I also show all three genetic risk factors for breast cancer.
I have a HUGE supplement list. Most everything on your list. Plus many more. Should I consult a nutritionist or geneticist to be sure I'm doing the right thing? And not poisoning myself unawares?
At 29, I have several problems I fight with and have for quite a while. Most of my problems began at 16-20.
Systemic inflammation. I always test positive for ANA. Always homologous. I've seen several rheumatologists with no answers yet. We continue to try. YES I have advanced periodontal disease. My periodontist refuses advanced treatments after the deep scaling, simply because my tooth health and care is "impeccable" and she knows it's due to another cause, and encourages me to continue chasing my rheumatology connections.
Systemic inflammation. I also have early onset arthritis and degenerative disc disease. It mainly affects my neck. I have seen doctors for this for ten years and have currently been able to stop injections and am only on one medication. No NSAIDS. Only Tylenol occasionally and muscle relaxers only as needed during a spasm. Everything else is supplemental. But I'm facing inevitable surgery. And again I'm only 29.
GAD. I only was diagnosed with anxiety this year but after counseling I've clearly had it most my life. It's pretty well controlled now and I'm doing much better. The depression has been scattered among random times in life but really didn't affect me until I lost my father. I'm doing alright but occasionally it gets to me. My ONE medication controls nerve pain, anxiety, and depression, (Duoloxetine) and I'm on a steady low dose.
So... Could any of this be connected?? Should I inform my doctors and make them aware? I now have a ton of genetic information to sort through and I feel I need help in some way.
I'm ALWAYS deficient in VitD and B Complexes. I've been on supplementation of D off and on and B pretty much daily. I was diagnosed by a neurologist years ago of being deficient due to my bodies inability to store it and use it properly. Which was confirmed when I read through my genetic information. I showed the markers for exactly that. What is everyone's choice for B supplementation? I've tried the shots and sublingual drops to no avail. Currently I'm taking Vit B energy shots AT the advice of my doctor because nothing else will balance my levels. Or give me ANY energy. I'm fatigued almost always. Unmotivated as a result. Suggestions? Comments?
SOMETHING POSITIVE. So I don't sound completely doom and gloom here I would like to suggest something if I may. Since Red light therapy has been proven to increase ATP production (and is FDA approved for so many things) has anyone tried it? I have both a hand held device and a large back pad I use on myself, my dog (for her arthritic hips), and my horses (for swelling, stress reduction, inflammation in joints, etc.) I love it and use it often on my pets. I'm thinking I will use it more on myself if I can learn the areas best to treat. I'm also in process of ordering a systemic EMD (electro micro current device) to use on us all as well. It's end result is increased ATP and fully energized cells as well. Thoughts?
Apparently I also showed genetic variants that conclude I'm resistant or poorly absorb or metabolize certain medications. INCLUDING ALMOST ALL HEART MEDICATIONS. JOY JOY Right?? I've had a few bloodwork results come back with high cholesterol already. My doctors just shrug it off because of my age. I've had heart trauma before and wore a monitor for a year. They also shrug this off due to my age. Thoughts? Should I pursue a cardiologist for yearly exams?
Head trauma. Oh sweet Jesus have mercy. I'm a horse trainer. I've had more concussions than I can remember. (Har Har. Bad pun)
I even have imaging that concludes brain damage and poor circulation through certain areas and have been put on baby aspirin permanently. And I haven't been exactly consistent with it. (Boy will that change now..)
Soooo. Anyone else happen to have gone through any sort of head trauma and have a good direction to go or is it all just prevention from here on out?
