I am not sure where to go for help either. I don't have insurance anymore, so I just stay with the same doctor that I don't feel listens to me or any of my symptons. I have hypothyroidism, that I take synthroid for. But it doesn't seem to help my feeling of constant fatigue. I am a 30 year old stay at home mom that in the last two years have had some serious situations in my life. My first time pregnancy was 6 months of constant sickness that ended in a premature birth of my daughter at 24 weeks. She was in intensive care for the first three months of her life. We almost lost her twice since her birth weighing in at only 1 pound 6 ounces. So now that my daughter has made it to her second birthday I wish I could feel good to be alive, instead of always aching and being depressed and being extremly fatigued. My girlfriend was diagnosed with epstein bar a year ago and from everything she has gone through I can always relate to her syptoms. Well when I spoke to my Dr. she shrugged it off and said if I ever had mono I was probably a teen, and not to worry about it now, without any further dicusscion. So any way I have panic attacks, nausea, tiredness, headaches back pain, neck pain, serious pms and pain with my period. Then to top it all off she just tells me all this will go away with my anti-depression meds. wellI have been on paxil for a year and a have to no avail, now she's going to try me on sarafem, and with no insurance this all is very costly. But at this point I would be willing to pay anything if someone could actually help me. I know I need to find another Dr. that will listen to me but where do I begin? Anyone that can give me some advice I want to be the best mom I can be to my miracle daughter. Also I am now worried that I could have a blood clot in my right leg. I am a mess!!!!
