Hi Ed,

I call it the DR/med merrygoround for a reason. 40 yrs & I am still riding that merrygoround. You would think, w/in the past 30-40 yrs, that I would have come across Lots of Good Drs. Especially, w/ moving & Insurance Changes necessitating another Opinion. I've changed Neuros, in this town, three times. G.P's, 4 times & fixing to try again. Pulmonary Doc has to go, too.

Thank Goodness for Others' who have 'been there, done that.' It Helps Knowing We Aren't Alone!

Love Candi

I agree with Ccandi.

I have been on more than 10 meds and still they are changing them when I get in there on the 20th. This is my 3rd neuro in th e same city otherones were complete jerks, GPs 2 times only becuase the first one quit,

thta was PHX now I live on Ohau and I have another Neuro and GP there. so that makes more changes.

you will get through it or at least used to it at some point.

I had to,

Mahola

You had said that Vimpat caused hair loss for you and your doctor told you to take biotin and magnesuim. Did that work for you. Did you hair get back into good shape or is it still falling out? I am so upset because my hair has turned terrible and is so thin and frizzy. email me at lauragallaugher@letu.edu
