Re: SRRI question




I'm always getting the acronym wrong for the SRRI! Me and acronyms just don't go :) Luckily you know what I mean!

My VV is very limiting (can't stand for more than 10 minutes even if I am moving around and exercise is a particular problem and as a result I am rapidly putting on a lot of weight) it is definitely getting worse as is my circulation problem. I wouldn't mind but it takes days for me to recover now from an attack; and with my GP refusing to give a doctors note to cover absence and the stupid occupational health doctor saying I'm just crazy I'm really in a mess. I really need to get things going regarding treatment that works but as I cannot afford to go private it's taking a long time - too long really.

I know this treatment is next on the list, but can find no-one to support that it helps physical problems where serotonin level is okay, obviously I don't want to take it 'just in case'. Not with the associated problems in my case.

Your prayers are appreciated and I will include you in mine.
