Skip to comments.Prayer Request: Daughter of knittnmom
Posted on 06/01/2009 8:30:04 AM PDT by knittnmom
My daughter, who posts as Ellendra, has had continuing health problems. Dizziness and brain fog started in October 2008 and continues to get worse. She's seen a neurologist, who had eegs, an ekg, and an mri done, which showed nothing. A throid test came back very high, so she's now on meds for that, but there's been no improvement yet.
We suspect Lyme Disease, but tests so far have come back mostly negative. She's now seeing an integrative medicine specialist in another state, and we're waiting for results of about 20 different tests. Meanwhile, she keeps getting worse. Sometimes, her typing looks like a cat walked across the keyboard. Sometimes the dizziness causes her to fall, and she's gotten some bumps and bruises as a result.
She's seeing a different neurologist in July, one who specializes in MS, as that may also be a suspect.
We'd appreciate prayer. Thanks.
My friend was in such rough shape that she had to lie down in the back seat in terrible pain when being driven to doctors. Appears parathyroid issues are very common, but difficult for docs to diagnose.
Prayers for God’s blessings on all.
Prayers going up for your daughter and you, knittmom, for complete healing of these problems!
Did she have her carotid artery checked by ultrasound? I have a dear friend who was also having similar symptoms and doctors couldn’t find anything either...they checked the carotid and found it was blocked 80+%!! She is due for surgery in a few weeks to removed the blockage (can’t do the ‘roto-rooter’ type stuff for some reason or other) but she is very glad they finally found a diagnosis and that it wasn’t ‘all in her head’!
Well, in a way it was all in her head, but still!
Prayers being said for your daugher.
Prayers up! May Our Almighty Father guide her physicians that they can identify what is wrong, and help them to heal her and make her whole. I ask this in Jesus’ Holy Name, Amen.
:-) I don’t think her carotid has been checked. Would it be that badly blocked in a 28 year old?
Prayers for Ellendra.
A co-workers son had blasto in his head.They were able to remove it with surgery and now he is fine. It was like moss on his brain and they scraped it off.
Blastomicosis (excuse spelling)
Prayers for Ellendra and all your family.
May God’s love enfold you during this time of trouble.
Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
But we also know that we have an unmovable Rock, and a Great Physician to lean on. May He comfort you and Ellendra, and provide great healing.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
May HE who stilled the raging waters on the Sea of Galilee by a simple few words, "Peace, be still" - provide peace and healing for you both.
Wow - never heard of that one before!
Wouldn’t hurt to have them check for MG. You don’t have to have all symptoms.
Hope they find out what it is.
Sorry, that would be double vision, not necessarily blurry vision. The double vision is an early symptom, then goes away.
Thanks - we’ll discuss it with her current physician. The new physician is testing her for at least 7 suspected conditions. Without looking at the report, I don’t recall what all of them are.
