Sun, Jan 5 9:35am · Watching a Meningioma Brain Tumor in Brain Tumor

because of the dizziness and vertigo I can't drive so am pretty much stuck inside. I have tests coming up in the next few weeks and see the surgeon but for a year I have tried PT, several meds, I don't do well taking meds so try to stay busy inside. They don't have much to offer.

Sat, Jan 4 6:03pm · C Difficile: Do you have memory issues, disoriention, confusion? in Digestive Health

I finally had the FMT after not being able to cure c-diff, I searched for a doc that would do it, very expensive and insurance wouldn't cover a donor but a gastro doc right where I live did it for me calling it a colonoscopy, he provided the donor. I don't think I ever recovered then recently I had to go on antibiotics again and nearly fell apart from worry, I have taken florastor for five years but after this last five different antibiotics I took another probiotic, visbiome, I think it was called, very expensive but I didn't care, still worried.

Dec 19, 2019 · Anyone else diagnosed with acoustic neuroma, a benign brain tumor? in Brain Tumor

I was diagnosed last year, had all the symptoms for years but no one looked for a tumor so now I am 74 and have other health issues and am doing a wait and see. I go back in Feb for more tests and another MRI. It has been a terrible year of fear, I have lost my hearing on the left side and have bouts of numbness on that side of my face and pain in my skull along with headaches and vertigo, daily dizziness and can't drive anymore. I don't want surgery but I would like some help with all these symptoms. I have been going to Duke in NC as I live an hour or so away.

Oct 7, 2019 · After effects of heavy antibiotics in Digestive Health

five years ago I had a sinus infection and two docs gave me several antibiotics, I kept saying they were making me very, very sick til my husband took me to the docs and I passed out so she called an ambulance, I had cdiff four times and finally they did a fecal transplant, lost 20 pounds. My gut has never been the same then I got a uti last month and had to take an antibiotic for three days but it didn't get rid of the infection so took another for 5 days and still feel sick. I have taken a probitotic for all these years but GI doc said to take visbiome for two months as he suspects I will get the cdiff again. I am a wreck, I have a brain tumor that has been scaring me but the thought of cdiff again did me in. I told the doc the antibiotic was making me very sick and he said it was all he could give me so take and put up with the side effects!

there is no end, had it most of my life. I have gone to pain clinics to no avail unless it is my arthritis or something they can treat.
