what we know and not know
Thursday, May 16, 2013
My special blood work came back for autoimmune things and they were all negative. The RA factor was at the highest number for normal so that is an issue which I thought. And the x-rays of hands and feet for sure point to that and RA can interfere with digestion.
The cat scan of my digestive systems points to highly inflamed colon. So with the severe gastritis, inflamed colon and spastic colon I have issues. Just not sure what is causing it all.
I know there can be false negatives for an autoimmune disease and therefore they are going to do another test on Friday for something that they tested
in blood work but was negative called Sjogren syndrome.
Also it's very rare but my B12 in my blood is twice as high as normal and all the docs are stumped on that.
My GP doctor here the one who is managing my care and owns the clinic where I go believes in combining homeopathic medicine, Chinese medicine as well as Western Medicine and introduced me to her on staff homeopathic/nutritionist and I meet with her today at 10am. She believes I also have a symptom called leaky gut and will work with me on that.
I don't know why I would have that with the way I eat...but will do what she says as I am willing to try just about anything.
I am not feeling too bad today. Just a bit tired as I had a barky dog at 4am. Had to get up and tend to her and then hard to get back to sleep.
Hope all of you have a great day.
Thanks again so much for your well wishes for me.
