AntiSpam: orange


I have been ill since Oct 9, 2005. I have had numerous tests run and nothing abnormal is evident. I have seen a Cardiologist, neurologist, internest and gastro. specialist. My symptoms: a wave of heat rises throught my body exreme lite-headedness ( I need to lay down immediately, sometimes for hours) heart palps./ jurking of the heart muscle extreme pains in chest. often times diarrea very bad during ovulation and menstral cycle

My medical history consists of only one major probem and that was when I was 17 yrs old. I was diagnosed with SMA (superior mesenteric artery syndrome). I almost died when an emergency surgery was preformed by Dr. Williamson. I cannot communicate with him due to the fact that he has alshiemere's. One thing he said to me after my surgery was "one day you may have complications." I am currently working with a homeapathic specialist. She believes (based on my symptoms)that I may have vagal response syndrome.

I have never reached out to anyone before on the internet but I have been very ill for 9 months. I have made some progress...but I miss who I use to be. Can you help me Dr?

Sincerely, Catherine age 46
