As some of you know I had another visit with my LLMD in San Diego this week. It’s always nice to see San Diego even if it is for a Doctors visit. First up: test results as i mentioned in a previous post I had my CD 57 tested. I was never a science gal (more language and lit type), I know it has something to do with natural killer cells. I’ve heard this term on pregnancy loss boards. Anyway it has to do with your immune function. Normal is 60-360. I am 65. So the positive is while it’s low normal, it means my immune system is doing something. What gives me pause here is that is these natural killer cells are firing, you could that have contributed to my pregnancy losses as well? Makes sense since my body was already attacking foreign “things” inside. What gets me upset here is this could be a test any obgyn or say a fancy Beverly Hills endocrinologist could of thought of…I asked no begged the ridgecrest Ob to be referred out to a Maternal fetal medicine doc. My twins heart beats were mid 80’s and 90’s respectively. So almost where they needed to be, almost. The doctor said no, I wasn’t high risk….idiot. Moving back on a positive-ish note. My MSH was 38, normal starts at 30. So again low but low normal. That is your exposure to neurotoxins. Treatment: Those that know me personally know I’ve had a rough go of it recently. I’ve been herxing pretty bad, headaches, flu like symptoms. So we’re changing up things a bit. I’m lowering to one dose of Omnicef, sticking to one of plaquinel and adding minocyline (probably next week, I want to enjoy my weekend away). Sticking for just one a day for now. We’re also adding in a multivitamin and magnesium to hopefully help the head. In addition we’re going to be starting a detox kit of three different herbs to target the lymphatic system, kidneys and liver. Next appointment is in November, although I have a naturopath phone consult later this month. What else My son is still looking good. He started gymnastics officially and loves it. We are heading to Orange County for the Walk to Remember this weekend (hopefully). I’m sure I’ll have a recap of that.
So I thought I would give an update to the last post of life as a military wife. I had several ladies reach out in person or in email. Thank you ladies. On the other hand one of the gals from the team un-friended me on Facebook. Ouch.
