I love this show! Because it made me realize what I actually went through for the longest 6 years of my life! I knew my symptoms were too odd and I knew that the real conclusion wasn't found!! Thanks to the show I feel so much better knowing what road I went through. My favorite case was when the man (runner) who realizes that he has an all year round tan, and sometimes he felt like he was going to have a heart attack. I myself felt like I was going to have a heart attack at certain times. And boy were those years rough!! Don't want to go down that road again
Been wondering about my husband's condition if its not something simple what is it? looking for another opinions...
he lost his balance in the mid 90's ( family history of hearing problems, busted ear drum from botched tubes in ear op when he was a child) for the past couple of yrs we had been seeing a chiroprator together but he ended up getting acutely dizzy from the chiroprator even sitting up using the "baby device" our chiroprator was baffled and told us to get some neurological testing done. he hasnt seen the chiro since.
he also ate meat tainted with listeria last yr but didnt seem to get sick from it,
also he has excema (came on about 2003, had to quit his job they suspected it could be a reacton to chemicals but didnt know for sure) & usually in the summer its ok but it looks/seems just as if its winter. we have changed our soaps etc to natural ones free of toxic chemicals doesnt seem to change things.
knowing the show it makes me wonder if these ARE seperate issues, might not be.
for the dizziness hes has CT & MRI scans they ruled out any neurological problem & told to see ear/nose & throat dr & see what they say?
the only explaination is we were doing renvations so we moved to my old rm at my moms place for a couple of months w the mattress on the floor, seems a lame excuse. since he lost his balance hes learned to cope by sleeping elevated.
maybe you have some insight?? i really dont want him on pills if something else can be found. considering it took me so long to be diagnosised w PCOS.
could the new dizziness be caused by listeria even if u didnt seem to get sick from it?
I think Mystery Diagnosis is a great show!! Gingersnapper7 - you said you record all of the programs? I am trying to find the one that was on recently where a woman was misdiagnoised as having Leukemia. I am trying to find out what the actual illness was and how it was treated. This is for a friend of mine who was just very rudely told by a doctor she had leukemia. His was very cold when giving her this information "You have leukemia" and walked out of the room. She wants to get a second opinion, and would like to have them test for this disease.
