Postby jeannette71 » Sat Nov 10, 2012 12:05 pm

I have so many problems and suffering a lot.

1. I sneeze a lot - I'm allergic and also have Esinophilia.
2. I have breathing problem - Asthma
3. I have Sinusitis - Para nasal Septum - a bend in the nose bone and a tissue growth in nose.
4. Severe Head ache in even slightly abnormal conditions Migraine
5. Severe Pain which starts from back of my head and comes along my right shoulder and down till t end of my finger. And hip, right leg upto the end of my toe. I don't understand the cause for this whole right side pain.
6. I have pale patches on the whole of my chest.
7. Tiny dark spots on my ankle

For the first 4 points, I have seen innumerable doctors. Tried all kinds of medicines from Allopathy,Homeopathy, Ayurveda for months together. It's more than 8yrs now, and I still find no difference at all. My chest pains like hell and still I travel more than 5yrs a day to work 8-9hrs at my office.

Please help me with my problems. I will be grateful to you.

Something to look at that your doctor may not have checked already - vitamin B12 deficiency. You haven't mentioned fatigue which is the most common symptom but this is worth checking just in case as most of your symptoms are listed under vitamin B12 deficiency. Two tests to diagnose deficiency. Vitamin B12 serum - over 800pg/ml or 600pmol/l is healthy and a urinary methylmalonic acid test - most specific for a vitamin B12 deficiency. This deficiency is commonly misdiagnosed so check your blood work. About one third of people have normal blood cells (is usually diagnosed with large blood cells) with vitamin B12 deficiency.

Vitamin B12>>

http://www.drdach.com/B12_Jeffrey_Dach_drdach.html

Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms include pain/numbness/tingling/electric shocks as deficiency affects the nervous system, chest pain, migranes, asthma, is associated with vitiligo (white patches), petechiae - blood leaking into your skin from tiny little capillaries just under your skin. The bleeding causes the petechiae to appear red, brown or purple. (which is sounds like you have - tiny dark spots on your ankles). The petechiae may just be from your allergies however.

"Petechiae tend to appear in clusters, more often on areas of your body where circulating blood applies a lot of pressure in your veins, such as your ankles and feet. But at times, they appear elsewhere on your body, such as on your abdomen."

Petechiae may look like a rash as well.

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/petechiae/MY01104

Causes of petechiae>>>

* AIDS
* sepsis
* rubella
* mumps
* vasculitis
* parvovirus
* chickenpox
* endocarditis
* scleroderma
* viral infections
* mononucleosis
* aplastic anemia
* allergic reactions
* Epstein-Barr virus
* meningococcal meningitis
* thrombocytopenic purpura
* hemolytic uremic syndrome
* Rocky Mountain spotted fever
* cancer ~ leukemia, lymphoma
* blood poisoning from severe bacterial infections
* autoimmune diseases ~ lupus, rheumatoid arthritis
* hemolytic uremic syndrome ~ can occur with E. coli bacterial infection
* malnutrition ~ vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin B9, vitamin B12 deficiencies

The most common cause for eosinophilia is a parasitic infections (such as hookworm, schistosomiasis), allergic conditions (such asthma and hay fever) and certain types of drug reactions. So the eosinophila sounds like it would be from your asthma.

Lack of digestive enzymes can cause food allergies. Allergies/food intolerances can be caused by a thyroid imbalance. Vitamin B12 deficiency affects the thyroid and can cause hypothyroidism. Heredity factors can be a cause of food allergies - a recessive gene has been identified as being linked to IgE-mediated food allergies. Repeated exposure to the same foods, especially in large quantities is another cause. The most common cause of multiple food allergies, according to many allergies experts, is having a 'leaky gut' - increased intestinal permeability. Many people with food allergies suffer from impaired digestion. Incomplete digestion of foods which then pass through a leaky gut into the bloodstream is a major contributing factor to the problem of food allergies. Enzymes help break down food so this is used in treating a leaky gut.

Asthma is also found to be linked to vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D is cruical to activate the immune system. Vitamin D is also shown to prevent cold, flu, cancers, reduce asthma attacks, essential for good bone health...to name a few! Vitamin D deficiency also causes migranes. Optimal vitamin D level - 80ng/ml or 200nmol/l. 5000IU a day. To read more about vitamin D>>>

http://www.foodmatters.tv/_webapp/_webapp/The%20Truth%20About%20Vitamin%20D

"Much of the research into whether vitamin D might hold the key to a "cure" to allergy asthma symptoms was reported by Dr. Daniel Searing in the Journal of Allergy & Clinical Immunology. It has been found that if a child is tested to have a deficiency of vitamin D in his or her system, that can have a profound effect on the functioning of the lower lungs. Increasing the levels of vitamin D into the diet of the test subjects showed that they had a much greater ability to recover from allergy asthma symptoms."

Another article i read is about vitamin C.

"Most allergies usually disappear while you wait if you use the safest, most powerful, cheapest and most effective antihistamine-antitoxin in existence: vitamin C"

I need to ask you this:
- What specialty of doctor did you visit? Pulmonologist or general practitioner?
- What is your hope? Totally cured? Keep in mind that allergic people or asthmatic tend not to be cured but only controlled / managed. The best you can do is avoid the allergen.
- Did a doctor diagnose you with migraine? Half side of head ache does not mean a migraine. Migraine symptoms are tend to moderate-severe; nausea, vomiting, photo-phono phobia, etc.

For number 5, you need to see a neurologist, might be a nerve entrapment or something disturb the nerve at cervical area. Might also be an abnormal shape of bone, or stenosis.

For number 6, how pale is the patch, like vitiligo? How spread is the distribution? (Actually for skin problem, best way might be post a picture with a good quality). Any symptoms like itching, pain when touched, etc?

For number 7, same with number 6, best with picture. Is it a varicose?

Do you have other systemic condition other than asthma? Like diabetes, hypertension, hypotension, etc.

Editted:
I don't know about chest specialist (none like that exist here that I know). I only know cardiologist who are good at heart problems and pulmonologist who are good at lung problems

ENT as for ear, nose, and throat? If you have asthma, then you need a pulmonologist, not a ENT specialist. I don't know whether have you do the spirometry test since you went to ENT, not a pulmonologist.

You did:
X-ray: X-ray is good for checking bones. asthma won't show up in x-ray, best test would be spirometry. but an X-ray is needed as a standard test to rule out other diseases. So it's not wrong to do this.

CT-scan: Ct-scan is basically a rotating X-ray. I would suggest best way to check your head-neck region with a MRI. but I also know the expensive price of MRI. Well, if the CT-scan was clear, no abnormal bone, your neck doesn't look straight (normally our neck should make a C-curve), then the doctor can rule out bone etiology.

Blood test:
Well, a high eosinophil means you have an allergic/allergic reaction / infection (infection perhaps not in your case).
But not really able to tell what is the cause.

For the skin problem, is there any kind of patern? line, circle, centrifugal, etc? Can you see clearly the border of the white patch? I am thinking of tinea versicolor/Pityriasis versicolor. It's a fungal infection. Try google/wiki and see if is it a match with your problem.

Anyway, if you think your skin problem disturb you, you can always take it to a dermatologist.

Still, I would think you need to re-visit your neurologist or simply visit other neurologist. The problem is either the bone abnormality or inflammation of the nerve at spinal region.

Oh that's easy. I think you have sinus issues probably caused by allergies. you need some emergency asthma medicine first of all. Secondly i have the same issues an I take medicine for the sinuses. The only issue with that is the number of the the medicines that I have to take because none of them work by themselves. If I'm going to take medicine, I start with one zyxal(allergy medication) at night, and one green with a white sudafed. The sudafed have to be taken every 4 hours all day. When I wake up I take a 24 hour Claritin D. I take zyxal again the next night and Clarinton again the next morning. Usually that is enough to keep my nose from running and the sinus headaches away. It doesn't help the asthma though.



Oh and I don't know about 6 and 7 though. try web md for that.
