Thankful for finding the correct diagnosis
I know all my problems is just as small as an ant. I just have to remember the things God has brought me through. The doctors where l lived said l had angina, large h eart, ms, Parkinson disease, bipolar, schizophrenia, copd, asthma, elevated ammonia, and so many other diagnoses. I began to think about Job how he went through and God brought him through better than before. There was something just not right. I just couldnt believe all those diagnoses. I was unconscious so many times. I was falling a lot and l was told it was only syncope and that was true but why? I tore my cal from all those falls. And when l was admitted in the hospital in 2014, l never had any of these diagnoses before. Oh an l forgot encephalitis, autoimmune encephalitis, encephalopathy. I never even heard of all these diagnoses. So in 2014. I was on antidepressants and that’s what they thought l was allergic too. But it was the goodness of God that I am off of that. Now when l was in the hospital l was only allergic to codeine now l can’t even count how many drugs l am allergic too. When l see the doctors they are afraid to give medicines. Then l guess l wasn’t getting any better on the hospital so they wanted to put me in a nursing home. But God didn’t allow that to happen l got better. So then my new neurologist said l had conversion disorder. That was the last straw. So deep down inside it just didnt sound right or felt right that l had all these problems. So l went to the Mayo clinic and my internal medicine doctor looked at all my records and she said you really been through it. She said you don’t have biplor or schizophrenia. She said l worked with patients who had mental illness and your not one of them. Well that was the beginning of the blessing. She set me up with all the doctors that l needed to confirm the diagnoses. Before they couldn’t draw blood it was with such difficulty from so much scare tissue. The phlebotomist was able to get 19 values of blood in one stick. Then l had to see the neurologist. She said l have been a neurologist for along time. But l said in my mind not as long as God. So she told me if everything comes back normal, l will have to send you to behavioral therapy. Well everything came back normal but my Ana was still high. So they wanted me to have a PET test for dementia. And that came back normal. She was going to send me to see psychiatrist lone saw two. The last on was a Bahavorial psychiatrist. She cancelled that appointment. When l saw the cardiologist. I didn’t have those problems. He told me you have high blood pressure that uncontrolled but it in controlled now. Then l was diagnoses previously for dyephesia, firbromuscular , false. Seizures? No dementia, no me, no Parkinson disease, COPD. So the other 3 appointments she cancelled. She told d me you were misdiagnosed. Praise God. She said you had encephalitis and in 2014 they said it was autoimmune encephalitis, encephalopathy?. Yes l do have elevated ammonia, asthma instead of COPD and when l asked how l got the elevated ammonia. My previous gasterentogist said it was from medicine l was taking for all these years. Now that just me not everyone else so definitely don’t think that for you. So the vascular doctor said one of the shunt are open and they did the procedure wrong. Isn’t that something so when l was falling and losing consciousness, hallucinating, and not acting like myself. And they said the problem was the elevated ammonia because that can happen and it can sometimes your levels can fluctuate so now that one shunt that open we have to fix it. Now that was definitely and answer to prayer and l was at the right place at the right time the Mayo clinic and there doctors really care.
