Well today I saw my ENT. This wonderful doctor has been treating me since the beginning of my ordeal. He put me on thyroid medication despite my levels being in the normal range because nothing else was getting rid of the swelling and as he said, “How do we know that this number is your normal?” He is the only doctor who offered to give me the IV’s I need to help fight all that goes on in my body. He is the only one who knows that I am not the “normal” patient and thus does not treat me like a “normal” patient.
And today despite knowing that antibiotics are not good for me or that I only have one truly safe one that I don’t react to, he truly felt that I needed to take one. The only antibiotic that I haven’t reacted to is Omnicef. It has been quite some time since I have needed one but here I am taking it. Soooo – bring on the probiotics. I don’t dare take this medication without plenty of probiotics even though I am on an antifungal.
I respect my doctor because he does not prescribe medications unless he feels there are no other options. I have tried the silver, I have tried grapefruit seed extract and I irrigate. I have immotile cillia and sometimes no matter how much I irrigate the infection just begins and takes over. The mold exposure and fungal infection has left my sinuses very vulnerable. My face feels like it has been hit by a MAC truck. The trigeminal neuralgia on the left side of my face was so bad yesterday (and helped with acupuncture to reduce the severity) but still I had pain in my ear. The magnesium, glutathione and Vitamin C IV helped with the neuralgia but my maxillary sinuses still hurt.
Dr. Spitzer (have permission to use his name in my book so I feel free to use it here) thank you for being my doctor and not ever for one minute thinking I am crazy and for thinking and working “outside the box” in treating me. And thank you for fighting so hard for me in my battle to prove my work injury and fighting for me with the insurance carriers.
