Newbie with mutations and so, so overwhelmed!

Discussion in 'Genetic Testing and SNPs' started by HAPPYBUNNY, Mar 25, 2015.



    Hello All,

    After searching far and wide, I have to say, the forums on this site are so helpful and suggestions so enlightened. I really hope you all may be able to help me.

    I have postnatal anxiety, and take sertraline (zoloft) for it with the occasional Ativan when needed. This is a very new illness for me and came about when I was breastfeeding my son, as a single mom, with no family and very limited sleep. I was a zombie. A year later, I do feel better, though I seem to get the odd cloud of anxiety from time to time.

    I seem to be so tired, though. Aches and pains throughout my body. I'm only 35, but when I stand up from a seated position I feel like I'm 80. Everything hurts. When I sleep at night, I also find myself oversleeping....I'll sleep 10-11 hours and really could do more if I didn't force myself out of bed.

    Anyway, without further mutations from 23andme data...through gg:

    MTHFR A1298C - hetero (+/-)

    Homozygous mutations:

    • COMT V158M
    • COMT H62H
    • VDR Bsm
    • MTRR A66G
    • MTRR A664A
    • CBS C699T
    Here are your heterozygous mutations as indicated in your SNP gene table above (not including MTHFR):

    • MAO-A R297R
    • MTR A2756G
    • AHCY-01
    • AHCY-19

    Can anyone shed light on my situation, things I should look out for, therapies, etc? I'm so lost and so much of the information is incredibly technical.

    Many thanks in advance,
