I've finally seen my GP about what seems to be worsening OI. For at least a year I predictably have an episode of low BP in the afternoon when I'm doing my minimal food prep. Light headed, pain in mid-back, often including sweats and chills, nausea. If I stop and lie down, it passes in a few minutes. It seemed to be less of a problem when I took my adrenal glandular at least half an hour before my activities. In the past couple weeks, I've also had similar episodes during my morning food prep, and have felt my BP to be my most debilitating symptom. I copied bits from 2 documents , here and here, I found helpful, to take to GP. I've also been having what I believe to be IBS-D for some months, and spent 3 months in eczema hell. My previous GP hasn't been seeing patients, and I've now been w/ the current GP about a year. He was honest w/ me, that he doesn't have much experience in alternative or complementary medicine, and would speak to the former doc. However, just as when I saw him about 4 months ago, w/ what I finally realized was my first bout of eczema, he suggested that my T3 thyroid replacement might be the problem. I'm willing to reduce the T3, even though I have no signs or symptoms of excess thyroid. However, I've also been losing weight. As he said, it's possible that w/ weight loss I might need less T3, and that this could contribute to both diahrrea and weight loss. (and low BP??) He took blood, and will contact me today or tomorrow. But he said it's also possible that I'd need to come into hospital for tests. I can't think of anything that would be revealed by hospital testing, as we have so many dysautonomia symptoms as a cohort. Hospitalization is probably the thing that terrifies me more than anything, especially because I have such limited food choices, and rely on so many supps for daily functioning. My acupuncturist, after I told her of my OI, did a treatment that had me feeling better the following day, but the benefits faded. My question: Any experience with these issues that hospital testing might help reveal? My sense is that it'll only get me into a round of unhelpful medical suggestions or interventions. Also underlying my condition is the death of my husband 2 years ago. The months of his illness and the subsequent demands, followed by the difficulties of emptying out the house in the first months of this year, have left my adrenals in very poor shape. This is what I feel is the basis of my problems. Thanks very much for any advice or suggestions. cheers.
