I have suffered with this health problem starting in 1992 after being subjected to round after round of antibiotic when my primary complaint was buzzing, hissing, pain, ears sensitive to noises. I was often unable to ride in autos because of dizziness. At the same time I suffered with flu like symptoms and dianosed with clinical depression with suicidal tendacies. For 2 years I was treated by one specialist after another with antibiotics and was at last told I would suffer with this condition for the rest of my life. One of my eyes pertrudes and I suspected tyroid problems, I get little or no sleep (thyroid test was inconclussive). I suffer with a loss of appetite and can only eat foods I crave, usually fried, greasy, hot spicy and lots of caffeine just to survive each day. If I go out in the weather (wind or cold) I am down for as much as a week, sometimes more. I have foggy thinking and have lost almost all of my organing skills. I can hardly answer the frequently asked question "how are you" I find myself lying just to keep from sounding like a whinner. Along with all the rest arthritis is now in my knees, fingers and my hip also any cold breeze cause pain somewhere in my body. I was once a healthy- "never get down with the flue" type and now I am in constant anguish. Please help I think I may have to move. I am not sure if I can survive another winter in Colorado. I would appreciate any help- I have not taken the antidepressants for a while and that makes it worse but the dark clowds really cause uncontrollable outburst and the last doctor did not give me an antidepressant and I am not sure how long I can last- Some days I work between tears and it is so hard.
