I wanted to share something that has recently happened in my life. I had been having lower right sided pain since I was only 12. No one could tell me or my parents what was going on. Age 18, they took out my appendix but it didn't help. I continued to get worse. I had so many misdiagnosis, at one point, I was told that I had cancer. Later, they told me I didn't. I was 20 when my daughter was born. I was still getting sicker. I had my son when I was 24. After my son was born, my pain really became horrible! I still kept trying to get answers and find out what was wrong with me. At age 25, the doctors told my mother and I that if I get a total hysterectomy it would help with the pain. I decided to get the surgery so I could enjoy being a wife and mom. A month after the surgery, my pain returned. I was told that I didn't need that surgery. I still kept trying to get better for my kids. I tried seeing every doctor out there, no help! They tried giving me so many different medications, nothing was working! I can't work, I can't enjoy running around with the kids. Most days I am in bed or on the couch. Age 34 I had severe chest pain, taken to the ER. I got admitted for a positive stress test. I am told that I have cardiomyopathy and CHF. I spend the next 5 days in the hospital learning about how I will have to change my life and keep track of my intake of fluids. I am told I will need a pace maker or wear a vest that will shock my heart when needed. I have a heart cath and find out that I had a FALSE POSITIVE stress test. I get to go home. Age 36, my son thinks that I am going to die because I struggle to make it a small distance. I am told from doctors that I should get a mobility scooter and a handicap parking spot. I am 36 and do not want this life! I don't know what other options I have. I have seen every doctor there is, paid out of pocket to try anything I could find, I have even tried vitamins and nothing is working! My husband's cousin is on something called Plexus. I never heard of it and from all the searches that myself and family have done, that never came up. His cousin has fibromyalgia and crohns. Plexus has helped her. I reach out to her and got more information. My husband and I decided that I need to rule out if this would do anything for me. Within 4 days, I can tell the difference. I can tell you that this is the longest that I have gone without fibromyalgia pain! My mind is clearer and I can remember things. My anxiety isn't there, I know what it feels like to relax. I can sleep all night and feel refreshed the next morning. My mood is so much better. All I was doing was snapping at everyone because I was so uncomfortable, I wasn't doing it on purpose. The best part, I can run around with my kids!! It has been a long time since I have been able to do that. I'm so much happier, it makes my family happier. Everyone is still amazed at how much this has helped me. I honestly didn't think this would work cause nothing else did. I am even back to being independent because I can work from home without the fear of letting others down or sending my kids back to school. I have been homeschooling my kids for the past 6 years now. I also have an amazing team that is helping me along the way. Please message me for details and I would be happy to answer any questions. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
